Re: first long run port engine quit!

Thanks! I ended up getting off the fuel filter with a chain/strap wrench and lots of prayer. Fun thing to do on a hot morning in July! But it was a beautiful Door County day for a cruise afterwards.

Re: first long run port engine quit!

Update: bent 2 oil filter wrenches trying to get it off. Even brought some muscle down and neither one of them could budge it either. I have chain strap that I am going to try next but part of me wants the mechanic who put this on to take it off! We did start the engine and it ran fine for 5 minutes...

first long run port engine quit!

Ran 30 miles, anchored for 2 hours and beat it back in 3-5' waves. Port engine sputtered and quit. Ran for awhile on starboard engine and it started only just to quit. Gas was down to 1/4 tank (i had a 1\2 which was half new gas and half from who knows when). Got it to gas dock on 1 engine (thank yo...

Re: Shore power primer

It was the batteries...port engine would not start again for our Father's Day cruise. Ran down to Walmart and bought 2 new ones and she fired right up (after I figured out it is important to have ALL the wired connected!). Had a great day on the water, docked like a pro at a resort but kind of muffe...

Shore power primer

I think I need a primer in shore power and the manual does not really help with this. Our F32 is now in her slip and plugged into shore power. I turned the red switch on to charge the batteries since one was low and would not start the port engine. Everything worked. 3 days later I turned the charge...

Re: Forward bilge pump??

Thanks, I will look again but so far have only been able to lift up the floor panel and under the V-Berth.
So, water sitting in there is normal and will be gone once we are underway?
