Re: repairing diesel engine on the dry
.....Most Diesel boat engines in the 30 hp range will need ~3 gallon per minute for running at ~2000 rpm.
I think this a rather light. I never really thought of the GPM of the seawater pump. Having recently winterized, I pumped 5 gallons of antifreeze through the genset pretty quickly, so I looked it up. It has a 13hp Yanmar and pumps 5.5 GPM.
Edit: the 26hp version of the same gen, pumps 13 GPM.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
