Circled back to the annual maintenance. I had to use vice-grips to crack the bolts on the impeller cover – but it came off ok. The impeller turned out to be like-new. I replaced it, and the O-ring, anyway.

I need to look at the Raycor fuel filter, grease a bunk bearing on the prop. shaft, and find out if I have zincs embedded in the raw water cooling system. I can call the ‘annual’ done at that point.

No haul-out this year.
