SV Aventura (Lagoon 37 TPI catamaran) will leave New Orleans Wednesday morning on a two month cruise along the northern Gulf coast and western Florida.  One of the best parts of cruising is meeting and talking with other cruisers, so if you see us in a marina or anchored nearby, please stop and say “Hello.”   We’d be happy to spring for coffee.

Yanmar 4JH4AE raw water pump wear plate

I recently changed the wear plate on the raw water pump on the Yanmar. I have about 1675 hours on the engine and the plate showed significant scaring and wear. It was an easy change-out. After removing the impeller the plate simply sits behind it and is easily removed with a dental pick/ bearing pick/ or toothpick. I also added the Speedseal Life cover.
