Mason Bay

The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

On the tow back from Auckland the other week we had some overheating issues in the exhaust trunking. I believe it was lack of ventilation.
So drilled and installed 4 copper vents under the mizen mast. I also vented the trunking in the loo up thru a large cowl vent on the cabin roof.
In addition I have been instructed to ensure the engine air inlet goes down to the bilges, so have installed a plywood duct in the engine room.
Time for testing....
