Maintenance/Repair Details: Commenced work on port engine with the replacement of oil filter. Having become aware of the wear on the stbd raw water pump the port side pump has been removed and passed to the marina engineer for reconditioning as was the stbd pump in the previous entry.
In order to remove the raw water pump the alternator needed to be moved to make room and in doing so was found to have very bad connections to the rear wiring, with some wires exposed. All connections duly cleaned, made good and re-insulated.
18th November - Due to the condition of the raw water pumps it was decided to replace them but finding new pumps was difficult. Thanks to ASAP supplies a complete reconditioning kit was put together in order to rebuild the better of the Jabsco pumps. We also managed to purchase a rare complete new pump from Mack Engineering in Glasgow.
3rd December - Received from the marina engineer two raw water pumps, one new and one fully reconditioned. Next maintenence log will be the reinstallation of said pumps.
