1. Often mechanics, doing a job such as changing a raw water pump impellor or cleaning a heat exchanger, will let raw (salty) water drain onto the engine. Often they can’t do the job without this spillage. The same is true with you and me. When it happens, it’s important to take remedial action.
2. Anytime you have to dump raw water onto parts of the engine, make note of where the water touches the engine and, after the job, spray it with fresh water. Start the engine and let it get warm enough to dry the moisture. Then spray with a good appropriate corrosion inhibitor after the en...... Read More

One of the many benefits of sailing to foreign destinations is traveling inland to see the sights at your leisure. You get to explore the new land from the comfort of your own floating home. It's a simple but perfect concept for those of us who are born travelers. Cruising is about passagemaking and landing, and for so many sailors the “arriving” is just as important as the “getting there.” It certainly is for us. Thinking back over our two decades of sailing, many of the high points we experie...... Read More
