While the expansion tank contents fluctuated yesterday during an hour-long run at cruise speed, it didn't go above "max" or below "add". I, on the other hand, added a hose clamp to the tank barb...a likely culprit, I think, for the original loss of coolant.

I will monitor this, however and will likely have the entire cooling system/heat exchanger pressure-tested just in case. I will also examine all petcocks/drains and hoses for tiny leaks.

I would've done this yesterday, but I was a tad preoccupied (see "gravity versus boat" thread...) in General Discussion.

Thanks for the responses!

Yes, running home to put on a pair of clean shorts will eat up a bit of time... so will stopping by the ER to get your heart restarted.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

you may be able to get a loaner pressure tester from oreilly auto parts, they're real nice about loaning tools. (they have a program)

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
