23163RE: [SabreSailboat] Attention gearheads
- Dec 1, 2009
Jeff makes a good point; this was an unusually foul year on the Bay. I had similar rpm problems with my Yanmar (it only reached 2,000) and the boat was just plain slow under power. I don’t recall having any black smoke. I had a diver clean the bottom and all the symptoms disappeared. Obviously, this won’t solve your starting problems, but that could be a different issue entirely.
Will it rev over 1500 out of gear when warmed up?
If you didn't use the boat much, is the prop/hull fouled with growth?

Subject: [SabreSailboat] Attention gearheads
After a miserable summer and fall of non-sailing due to illnesses, weather and life in general, I found my W18 increasingly tough to start, with lots of cranking and black smoke. When I got out, it wouldn't rev over 1500 and was pushing out plumes of black smoke. I'm thinking dirty/leaky injectors. Any other thoughts or sugggestions?
