You have storage under that step?! I got cheated on my Chris! Can the government do something about this?
Anyway.........took out the boat yesterday and turned the wheel over to a friend and went to the engine room to take some IR readings.
I'll only quote the rpm I ran up to: @ 1700 rpm I measured a temperature of 125 degrees on the shower head flange and 89 degrees approximately 4" down stream on a part of the stainless sleeve just prior to the rubber elbow.
These readings would, of course, change with an increase in the water temperature as the summer wears on. Other variables would seem to apply as well, but I feel comfortable with the current readings. I believe the 185 degree alarms I am installing will help me sleep better.
This is, as promised, for informational puposes only.
