Just to get back on the horse...had a short sea trial on a 330 SS Formula and a longer one on a 33' Coastal yesterday. No problems, but we didn't stop for 4 hours and bounce around either.
Wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

It's amazing that a 4 million dollar yacht could leave you feeling so helpless and all over a stupid pump. Was it just a bad pump or was there a problem getting power to the pump?

The diesel engine surveyor suspects sabotage from the engineer who was not available for this sea trial! What a disaster! You wouldn't believe how much damage was done to the furnishings. The galley looked like a bomb went off. The circuit breaker for the fuel tranfer pump was BEHIND a panel that had to be completely removed for access.

I am surprised there is no redundancy for the transfer system on a yacht that size. If I had something capable of crossing oceans, I would want redundancy in all systems.

So you were checking with Captain O'Rourke, trying to buy a Buick!


I know the feeling.

If there was/is nobody on board knows about it. The captain and 1st mate were clueless. What a day for the engineer to be missing.
