Re: New to us CS36T and Westerbeke 30
Congrats on the new boat. I know it's not easy, but try not to obsess to much about things. Really, if the engine ran fine for 2+ hours and didn't burn or leak anything, it must be in decent condition. Change the fluids so you have good baseline, then enjoy the boat.
A few minor points:
-Without a clear bowl on one of the fuel filters you really have no way of knowing what's in the tank. One of my fears with old boats is sediment being stirred up in rough seas and clogging the filter. With a clear bowl you can at least get some indication of the tank condition.
-Do you have engine driven refrigeration? If so, there another type of heat exchange with another anode.
-While are working in the engine compartment be cause to check the stuffing box for drips, leaks, etc. That may require some maintenance as well.
