My partner and I bought a 1997 Cruisers 3650 (salt water
boat) moved up to Toronto...been living aaboard three months. Been enjoying the boat throughout our summer. We had an odour problem we resolved by replacing the vent filter with a direct hose to the outside. (we have no boats on either side of us. )
New problem...hopefully minor...we Took the boat out about a week ago...port engine
took several tries to start...but ran fine for the entire trip...went to take it out this week...Port engine
reset button was clicking. I shut the power, pulled out the manual which told me to check Baterries, check connections, ccheck ignition and master ignition...all seemed fine at the time.
I had to leave it for another day because of business, came back went to test port engine again...this time the port engine buzzer sounded erratic, instruments bounced around...but nothing happened with either the engine or the reset button.
The Batteries all test well...one boater says I should follow the red wire from the engine to through the boat and see if there is a break or short somewhere. I'm brand new to boating
and need some experienced input...most of the powerboaters where we are are away during the week and out early in the mornings on weekends.
Any suggestion for us noobs?
