Okey, thanks so much for the help...!
Of course, I hold no one the least bit responsable. Its advise i'm asking for, and am very happy to be getting some.
Hauling it out of the water is not quite possible right now. I will check for some place where it might be safe to wait for the low tide, that seems a very good idea. One question tho, it does not damage the keel, to gound the boat like that...? Or is there a specific way to go about that...?
1 Do you think the valve was working since you bought the boat?
Yes. I've had the boat for a bit over a month. Water flowed in. Is fact, the sink worked, and it is the same intake.
2 What makes you think it is not working now?
- It went like this: Engine started to reheat a bit. Not much. Only when I revved it up a bit over 2.000. The water pump rotor is fine, so I started checking the intake.
Aparently this was a mistake. As soon as i moved the valve, the thing sealed shut, and the valve turns loose. It was in a very poor condition.
3 It is a valve with a "sink tap like handle" on top, or a valve with a handle with a single lever on top?
- Ok. You've got me there. It looks like a garden handle, really. With rust and all. I think its the second one, with a single lever. The lever turns loose, but the pass is sealed shut.
4 The kind of engine is not germain, but might help someone with the same set up to answer you. I am "presuming" that it is an inboard engine - is that correct?
- Engine is s Nanni Diesel. On-board. N3.21. The engine is in quite good shape. Cant say the same about the boat fittings, tho.
Thanks a lot.
