Cruising permit for pleasure boars
And on land way of transportation
and it is my fault. Click on picture to enlarge and check the ear intake.
To run the engine I had connected pipe of marinas water supply to engine water cooling system.
It can not been done in this way. The pressure is to high. Water pressure has the potential to penetrate inside of engine through pump sealing. Probably it would be fine as it was in Guatemala when I did the same. But this time I had not done the work at once, but instead I waited for rain to finish.
Engine has to suck the water. I could use some tank, which I could fill as needed.
What now. I don’t know.
Am I disappointed, frustrated. Ja , but I am over.
You know some people likes to swim in the crystal water, but then some others like to solve problems.
Dostojevski said: “The worst for man is to not have any problem!”
First in the morning I installed new battery.
I decided to put new starter when I noticed that engine is not rotating also with new battery. And by the way the parquet is destroyed from 10 cm of water.
It’s good that no one in Guatemala bought it. Remember? I was selling everything before leaving for Honduras.
After five hours I was done. Now the engine is cranking.
But it was hard.
And eggs soup. If you not have oil what else can you do.
Batteries are dead. I was expecting it. I borrowed one to check the situation of the main equipment. The first thing I found out is that the control unit with a display from Simrad Ap 24 does not work. The price on ebay is 500$.
If anyone could give me a hint how to open it:
Mechanic that has office here in marina offered to get me the battery that I’ll use to start the engine. I’ll check the price by phone.
Yesterday I cleaned the moisture all day, so that I can move on Tereza and not pay extra $ 30 a day for a room.
I do not want to put a concrete picture of moisture on the boat here, because I’m afraid that then nobody will have any interest to come and stay on Tereza any more.
Last two days there was a holiday in Panama, and everything was closed, so today I only ate boiled eggs all day (12 pieces) and did drink water from marina water supply water tap.
And I am still alive.
I will write more when i will be in mood. Today is my last day with Tereza. And i do not know when i will see her again.
Tomorrow at 5:20 i am begining new trip.
Thank you all.
