Pacific Cool is currently in Guadeloupe and as I was picking up a mooring in Les Saints, a big cloud of black smoke gushed out of my exhaust. I also noticed black particles floating on the water. It lasted about 10-20 seconds and then everything seemed to return to normal. I.E., water temp seemed normal and the oil pressure was a bit low but increased to 1.5 Bar when I increased the RPM. I let it run for a few minutes and got into the engine room to loom and listen. All seemed normal. I need to get off the mooring tomorrow.
Does anyone know what might have happened? I have a Volvo Penta 22 TMD which till this has run perfectly. After being on the hard in Trinidad for 6 months ending on 05 Jan 2018 it started immediately. I plan t have a mechanic check it when I get to Pointe-a-Pitre.
