Good luck Jody,
Checking in before heading to shilshoal for another three races today, hopefully with winds as there were yesterday in the 12-18 range!
by the way, yes you can use WD40 if need be as a starting fluid, crank and spray in. If you have glow plugs, DO NOT start spraying until the engine in cranking, then let off when it pops ie sounds like it will start, or after a couple of seconds. WD should not ignite when the glow plugs go off, but better to not take a chance. I am assuming that the glow plugs would be automatic such as in you pickup. If manual like on my bobcat and trackhoe, not big when you spray in, if you do before cranking, DO NOT engage the glow plug button! It may take two of you on board the boat to succeed with this option.
