I am in the middle of a cruise and twice we have had some trouble with the engine suddenly loosing a couple hundred rpm. I have a yanmar 2 gm. The first time the problem corrected itself after 5 minutes or so. This time were we're in tight and very windy quarters so headed in to a bay to get anchored nice we lost power out in the wind.
I am suspecting a fuel problem, but being fairly new to the boat am not overly familiar with its systems. I replaced the fuel filter about 150 hrs ago, an placed the filter in the water separator about 50 hours ago. It called for a 10 micron but the shop only had 2 micron and they said that would be fine. Not sure if that could be a part of the problem? All parts of the fuel system seem tight.
Any emergency suggestions?
Sorry just saw the title and it should read RPMs!! My iPad changed the spelling!
