Re: Diesel Smell

With my last boat I'm pretty sure I had the situation Faster describes, except that I was a little too clueless to look closely at the exhaust coupling when I kept smelling diesel. The elbow looked perfect. When the coupling broke one day (lots of drama), I was able to see that the coupling had many small perforations that were no doubt leaking before the dramatic end. Worth a check!
