In this episode of Sailing Dark Angel, Dockmaster Keith helps us trade slips with Seawind 1260 'Butters' in a very tight slip. Keith's instructions and help make it much easier than we anticipated.
Afterward it's time to service our Volvo MD2030 29hp, 3cylinder diesel engines... except the oil change. We don't have a container for the used oil
Ordering parts for old engines can be dicey. The belts and the oil filters are different sizes from what we had before, but they just might be an improvement!
