Ahoy Mates!

Hi I'm new to this site. I just bought a Catalina 30 1983. Beautiful boat, very nice condition with the exception that the diesel engine now will not start. I'm hoping I don't lose the entire sailing season in dealing with this issue. I have been sailing for many years, so I am fully aware of the vagrancies of owning a sailboat especially a 33 year old sailboat even one that has been loved and cared for it's entire life. So wish me luck. I have my boat on Stockton Lake in Stockton Missouri. Very nice sailing lake.

Re: Ahoy Mates!

Welcome! If you don't already have it, suggest getting Troubleshooting Marine Diesels, by Peter Compton. It can only either be a fuel or electrical problem, (right?), so it should be a simple fix
