Took Merva out for the day. Visited the head of Salmon Inlet and then returned. All-and-all… about 6 hrs out.
Did some investigating into why the Sea King (from Coast Foundry Co. Ltd) diesel stove goes out after a short while. I think there may be a blockage and/or leak somewhere from the tank to the carb. as I disconnected the intake hose and opened valve at tank and no flow. I plan to top up the tank before I get too excited about a possible blockage – then monitor tank level over time.
