Good day To you all amel sailors
Acter good run com Canarias To Cabo Verde (165 Nm best day with 25 to 30 kn wind & 3 M swell) tried engine To reef down main, & lost oil pressure when accelerating to 2000 rpm.
All Nice & Smith up To 1600 rpm, but cannot take it further.
Decided that it is toi risky To continue this way on pour round trip to southern Atlantic, therefore changing course To Martinique To replace ole' faithful by brand new engine.
Thinking a bout 60 up perkins.
Recomendations on contacts, supplier, workshops, shipyard in Le Marin or ôter technico Center around ?
Past experience ?
Fair wind & boas entradas
