Less than 50 days until we leave our home base.
Yikes. Oh My. Oh ****!
To think that home base is going to become wherever the anchor falls, and knowing that we’re not ready yet…but we’re getting there.
Today’s episode (no.64) is the first of many projects that we need to complete prior to setting sail.
Hope you enjoy the episode!
Repairing the Generator with Barnacle Buster
Thanks to our good friend and fellow sailor, Bruce, who recommended that we try Barnacle Buster (Click for Amazon Link).
The fact that the generator continuously overheated, yet I’ve serviced the coolant, impeller, and other parts (watch first generator repairs here) – it probably meant the raw water wasn’t flowing enough.
So we needed to flush the heat exchanger.
The Barnacle Buster worked perfectly, and now I want to do the same for my Yanmar just for prevention.
