Well a little update. . . .
The owner finally got back to us with regards to her accepting the terms of the survey and changing stuff that needs to be changed (abt time)
With regards the engine. . .the yard does not allow you to do it yourself so we had to get the "experts" to do it.
They had to first strengthen the boat on shore by adding more supports and then get the engine running.
So the appointment was for today at 9am. Me and the broker turned up. . .No one. We waited till 9.30. . .nothing. After that we went to the office to see what was up. They forgot about us -_- Were told that it will not be done before at least 10.20.
So at 10.30 finally things get moving. We get the boat supported on a hoist (nope they didnt even bother adding the extra supports) and got this "mechanic" guy that did not know why you should prime the fuel
line first before attempting to start -_- (and I do not know much about marine diesel
Anyways. . .the boat is with keyless ignition. So we switched everything on....ignition on....turned the switch to the start position.......nothing
(. Kinda felt depressing. . .
So this guy got an "electrician" to come have a look at it. The guy didnt even get a multimeter with him so we had to wait 10min for him to get back. . . only for him to go "Oh you got big batteries this will not do" -_- and go get an extra multimeter. .
Tried connecting batteries in parallel but in vain. The motor Battery
is new (bought it 3days ago. . 100Ah) and the House battery
is still good (another 110Ah). I have no idea what is wrong (I am no electrician) and neither did the guys from the yard (or morons. Call as you see fit. . .).
Supposedly the broker had a strongly worded argument with the yard manager after this. . .And hopefully a competent guy will take a look at the setup to see were the fault is. . .
The batteries do react to the starting attempt, because when the switch is turned into start I could see a minor drop on the Voltmeter. Maybe something is not quite right but ehh. . .goodluck in finding what to the electrician
