Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] water squirting from engine vented loop

  I really like this method of venting a loop as opposed to having to rely on a potentially clog prone check valve.  That “happy sigh” is giving you positive visual and audible verification that the vent is indeed open and is telling you that your engine will not drown from a back siphon upon shut down.

Ours doesn't "whistle" rather it makes a very soft, gentle, happy "sigh". I think I'd find a whistle annoying...
