Thanks for the laugh! I hope all goes well, after all we don't need an engine to sail, at least the good sailors and that seems to be the case with the owner of that boat.

Re: spot the boatman!

interesting marinization!

make sure the pump shaft is properly in alignment!
mis- alignment could have been the cause of the breakage

also check for play on the pump bearings

looks like a great engine though

Could also be old age.. 1981 when it was installed..
Don't appear to be any bearings.. its 4 teeth on a cog that mates with another cog which spins the impellor.. just a rubber grommet between the two..
But hell.. what do I know.. I just sail the bugga.. don't need to know what makes it tick..
Funny enuf.. when I did the owner assist for the PO from Nice to Tunisia I ended up having to sail her into Bizerte fish harbour and dock under sail as well.. so kinda know how she handles..
