I'm off to the airport then to Cinque Terra by car Wed Morning. Perhaps we will catch up when there. Really like that yard. Good people.
Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions.Heart of Darkness Joseph Conrad

Inspired by this thread I changed my impeller yesterday.
Wot names part numbers are correct.
I had at least one of each type and was able o compare.
Total cost of repair 23 euros. Excellent yard, very nice staff. They got us in immediately, let the engine cool for two hours at the repair dock, 20 minutes of repair time.
Here's a picture of the old impeller, glad we changed it. Several fins half missing, with most cracked and ready to let go. From now on, this will be changed annually, NOT after 1000 hours like the service manual recommends.
Off to Cinque Terre in the morning.
I was not envious of your impeller problems, especially given your lack of access but I'm very envious of your plans to visit Cinque Terre.
