Wednesday, January 9, 2013 / Brian / Maintenance  

Our good old perkins is running even better with it's new exhaust system. The installation went through without any real problems. I did have to borrow a bicycle from Anthyllide in order to get to the Ace Hardware to buy one last hose adapter. Here is a picture of the new hot exhaust riser before it was insulated.

The system now runs without any leaks, and the engine is starting easier and running smoother!

We are very excited to be mobile again and are looking forward to motoring down the Intracoastal Waterway while keeping a close eye on the engine to make sure there are no surprises.

    Good job!! Good way to begin the New Year. Seems a long time ago that you were in those beautiful little coves in Maine. Continued good adventures and I love getting your posts. Mark will be coming here to Fort Worth in a few weeks for the Cowtown marathon & he can tell us more.

    Good Job guys! Is that a vented loop I see in the system? Very well done. Have a safe passage.
