Re: Catalina 27 Maintenance - Where to start
Where to start? Owner's/operator's manual for diesel inboard - should include a maintenance schedule.
If you want to become acquainted with your inboard and routine maintenance, you can start by checking/replacing the impeller and cleaning the raw water strainer (if it has one), changing the oil and oil filter, changing the transmission fluid, changing the primary and secondary fuel filters, changing the coolant and checking the heat exchanger, checking the alternator belt, and checking/replacing all hoses around the engine.
You should probably also check all seacocks and hoses and check the rigging. Also, check the battery bank and condition of the batteries.
