Good extract from the book (I have it too !!). I have an extract from VOLVO parts book (part 26.1-3, cooling water intake chapter 26). This explicity states the strainer must be faced FWD for powerboats only, while must be faced AFT for sailboats. When I installed my MD2040 with SailDrive, a very nice US VOLVO dealer (I can't remember who, but it was in New York) handed me a copy of installation manual for engines, and that was years ago. Again, I'm very surprised your boatyard is not aware of this well known old specification .... send me your e-mail so I can send you the pdf, then you can print and show to them.
