Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Clogged anchor wash pipe

I am very surprised you have such problems on such a new boat.
When you are away from the boat for any length of time do you run fresh water through, the genset, engine, Ac, the anchor wash, and the 2 heads?
Possibly you can use a garden hose and a vane pump and circulate barnacle buster through the anchor wash for a while and see what happens.

Yes i did, from the pump end. Interestingly I get quite a flow out from the anchor end, but when I stop, I get about 5 litres back out of the pump end. So whatever is in there is stuck pretty hard. I'll try a bit more pressure.
I'm guessing the rest of the raw water circuit is probably quite clogged too... I got the engine heat exchangers cleaned recently but the fridges circuit and AC circuit will need attention.
Thanks for the tip!
