In absolute emergency
we have used the outboard
to get us out of a tight squeeze before but 30Nm is out of the question. The boat weighs over 20 tonne, a 3.5hp engine
pushes it at about 1.5kts on a good day. We had thought of trying to rig a temporary cooler, however the hoses are not long enough to make any difference and can't be extended as they are swaged high pressure hydraulic fittings.
We are looking at the weather forecast
and hoping for a bit of breeze on Friday. Fingers crossed.
A local contact is looking for a replacement and COR Coolers in Brisbane
are calling back today with a view to ship one to Tioman for us.
