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.
