And seriously, from experience:
1. Have you serviced the engine
? Like ever?
2. Do you actually know how much fuel
this bad boy carries?
3. Did you fill those tanks
All questions asked by myself 2 days before a 650 nm offshore passage
. Questions which were met with blank stares by the owners. I got the engine
serviced on a priority basis by a friendly mechanic
and filled up the water tanks
. We still ran out of water because some ******* took long "languorous" showers due to the heat. And we very nearly ran out of diesel
because the owner had no idea of his tank size nor the hourly consumption
. And neglected to tell me he thought not filling the fuel tank
was a good idea because we were "racing".
Check it all out yourself.
