Id like to tell you a story that will always remind you to run your blower before starting an engine
eve this past year, I had just finished doing a total rebuild
of a owens tahitian, 40' Powerboat, that I bought for a prodject, Uncountable hours of work, and unfortunatly countable dollers whent into this boat. She was buetiful! I was getting her ready to move to a new marina, After warming up the engins (twin 327's) I shut them down to get the fluids and such. After doing that I decided it was time to go , so I start one engin and then to the other. BOOOM! The entire boat blows up into a huge fireball.(with me in the engin room) I try and put the fire out with an extiguisher, HA that was funny
in hien-site. Then after jumping off the boat onto the dock
I begin to try and save the surronding boats. To make a long story short, I wound up being airlifted to a burn unit with 20% of my bodie in 2nd&3rd degree burns, and my boat burnt to the waterline and sank, while one other boat burned down and many other boats dammaged, The insurence company said it cost around 350,000 dollers in damage.
So the moral of the story kids
, ALWAYS RUN YOUR BLOWER FIRST!!
P.S. I know my spelling is horrible
