Re: Chartering out of Rock Hall: advice, please
Our charter date is approaching, and I've started to plot out a few potential routes based on your suggested itineraries. This has me really excited.
One area where I could use some guidance is diesel operation. I've never actually used one, since all my boats are gas outboards, although I have quite a bit of fundamental understanding from an engineering perspective. I'm also familiar with prop walk and other maneuvering tricks for an inboard, but the specifics of how to start/shut down a diesel (glow plug do's and dont's, fuel line shutoff, warmup time, opening/closing the cooling water intake) and other details are all new to me. I don't really have time to take a whole course on diesel maintenance, so is there some URL or other source I could go to for some quick how-to's on this topic?
