Do remember how it came out before, like a month or year ago?
That's the thing, I can' t remember. I think I thought it was low flow last year too but there was probably no steam.
We rented the boat
out again and I just heard from the guys, the engine
over heats. One hour at 2000 RPM
and the over heat alarm
sets off. Bummer, we ran it for 4 hours just this friday while motoring home in light winds without any over heating
issues. Oh well, I'm off to the Volvo Penta
dealer first thing tomorrow morning to get a new thermostat and a gasket
for the exhaust
elbow so I can lift
it off and clean it. I hope that sorts it, I'd hate to have engine
issues interrupt their week of sailing.
