PERKINS BOAT ENGINE REBUILD. Is it time to GIVE UP with this NIGHTMARE? EP. 115 | SV Cordelia


Location: Grand Mal
Latitude: 12.08000000
Longitude: -61.75000000
Published: 4 Aug 2023

Its hurricane season here in the Caribbean and our PERKINS ENGINE is in a millions pieces waiting for a rebuild. The humidity is about 90degrees and its hot hot hot.

Being on anchor rolling and hobby horsing about is not good at the best of times, but when you are over 50, in a hole no bigger than 8’ x 5’ without ventilation bending in yoga positions that have yet to be invented, life can be particularly hard.

Can we ever get the engine started or are we going to have to resort to looking for replacement?
