'Things i don't think I will ever write on a boating forum'
ah poor you. Its much easier when the whole family's life revolves round boats. That was her demo showboat at Ribex last year and the year before. Trouble is she would buy boats that this old *** has to launch and winch back on again. I keep telling her size isnt................ Oh I think I'll stop there.
Sat on the big boat waiting for bits. Replacement rebuilt D12 volvo engine came saturday. Fitted by mechanic thru hole cut in deck, fired up great. Connected other important bits sunday- like the cooling system, and it fired up, ran great and then sorta went bang with lots white smoke. Traced to new injectors put in by Volvo agent in Holland with protective caps still in place. Fuel has blasted thru side of cap ok but then cap has disintegrated leaving injector not torqued right and that has damaged its sleeve. Couriers on way from different directions now with bits and specialized tools. Bugga! Nice day out there too. Looks like I'm gonna be down here all night.
