Greetings from the Philippines
where we have been since February of 2020. We motored about 70hrs between Thailand
and here after launching the boat
following a year long refit
. Umineko is a 1990 St Francis 43 which has circumavigated and then some. Two Yanmar 3YM30
engines I've learned to learn about. One has approximately 5000h and the other closer to 10k. They've been around the world and then some too. As we haven't gone far since arriving, I've often run the engines just to charge the batteries
. Yes, yes, yes. That's bad. Now I am certain of it because I completely blocked one exhaust. Managed to get a couple HDI SS exhausts and I cannot believe how much happier my engines run.
