Engine Up and Running
We have a 20 year old Yanmar 56 on our Jeanneau. After our 4000 mile trip to Mexico and back, I wanted to have an expert check her out. As luck would have it, she needed a good going over. The heat exchanger needed a replacement. Due to Covid, the parts have been delayed in transit. Instead of the 5 days we were told, it will end being about 45 days. The part has not arrived, so I asked them to put the old part back on. Finally it is done and we will wait for the new one to arrive. Lots to look forward to as the sailing season is kicking into high gear with 25-30 knot winds on tap for the next 5-6 months. Yipee!
