Cannot place what you mean by crushable heat sheat, pictures would help.

I agree with you that the...

Re: Westerbeke - no start post inj. pump rebuild.

Normally there is some clever way to connect everything without bending fuel lines. It's quick and easy and will narrow down on the problem. I should have pointed out not to bend the fuel lines.

Re: Westerbeke - no start post inj. pump rebuild.

An easy way to verify the injectors deliver fuel is leave them out of the cylinder with HP line connected. Do keep away from the jet of fuel; this will harm you when you touch it.

We've done the med mooring thing numerous times. If you do it the classical way (use your main anchor) you don't need a bow truster. The hard part is judging when to let go the anchor; when done...

Doesn't look abnormal to me. I used to have a MD7B that also smoked a little. Loading the engine and giving it a good workout solved the problem. When running at idle it always smoked like yours.

Is you can find a bridge with the right hight and wait for a calm day that might work. It will still be a risky operation. Better to use a crane.

You can ask your sail maker to insert a double sewn piece of strong nylon band with extra reefing rings on either side to solve your problem. Or do it yourself; shouldn't be a big deal.

Find a 35' bridge or something similar and have someone hold the top of the mast from there while you connect all the rigging?
Easiest and safest way is tho use a crane of some sort.
