Actually without being back to the boat I am just guessing on the problem.. I think the blower is just there to suck out the heat not to blow in the engine. I have been out of sailboats for 12 years and even then I was an amateur. I assume you turn on the blower to suck heat out of the compartment. Of course the exhaust
goes out the side with the salt water
sucked in through these hoses.
If the hoses are not high pressure and just suck the water in and it get spit out, why would both sets of hoses genset and engine have similar blisters
or rises in the hose. They are close together 6-8 inches apart and have the blisters
on the same side of the hose facing the engine... I will take pictures Friday when I am at the boat.
Maybe the blower cools the alternator
.. I thought is sucks air or blow air into the engine compartment... I did not see the blower in the engine compartment but it was there cause it made a horrible noise
so I shut it off.
I am a sailor but I feel pretty amateurish .. but I will learn... with the help of you and this forum.. great forum with great people.
