Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Maramu engine access
I carry a rolled-up 3' x 3' piece of 1/4" EPDM that I lay over the engine if I have to work on it while it's hot. It's still pretty warm but enables me to work on things without getting burned. Our Maramu has the original Perkins 4-154 and the underway maintenance at the front of the engine has been almost exclusively limited to the raw water pump, which fortunately can be accessed without bear hugging the engine. But we once blew out the raw water pump v-belt, which unfortunately was number 3 inwards on the drive shaft multiple pulley, so had to remove two other belts to replace the broken one. That did require laying on the engine, and I was very glad for the EPDM then.
