This has come up before but I cannot find the solution to my particular issue in the existing threads. I have a catamaran
, with new engines that die (airlocks) when motoring in rough weather
. There are no leaks
in the system, and the air seems quite definitely to come from the tank, when it moves violently. The same does not happen in flat water
. The tank was at least 60% full.
I would prefer to not have to cut out the tank to fit slosh plates, but was thinking of a smaller header tank between the engines and the main tank, with an in-line pump
between those two again.
There are issues that arise from this: Will the in-line pump
not just draw air and block anyway? It also means that the header tank will be pressurised- not ideal, I would think. Any experience and advice please.
