SDog,
Your memories can only ease that edge so much. Revisit them often.

I'm glad you found the problem and resolved it.

You might consider pulling your heat exchanger core and cleaning it at some point. You can get a chemical cleaner or a radiator shop can dip it for you. It's usually not a very difficult job. Most marine diesel engine books will show you the steps. I like this one..

Amazon.com: Marine Diesel Engines: Maintenance and Repair Manual: Jean-luc Pallas: Books

It can certainly wait until the end of the season.

SD,
Be thankful for the time God gave you with her. She must have been real special. Pretty too.

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.

Speaking of barnacles on the prop...

I dove down and checked my prop again and found that in the 2 or 3 weeks since last posting here I have grown a new colony of barnacles. Smaller to be sure but they are there. I have a MaxProp and it is bronze. Last year I did nothing to it and I don't remember having much problem (last year was my first full season with the boat). This year I sprayed the prop with some Zinc spray from Pettit that the PO left in a box of odds and ends.
So what do you all use on the prop?
