Go to your local Harbor Freight and pick up one of these fluid line clamp kits. Cheap ($8), easy to use, and keeps your coolant loss to about half a cup when changing impellers.

Yesterday was a sloppy day. Started out with 15-18 kts on the nose, seas 3 ft @ 3sec. Had to push the A4 to 2800 rpm the whole day, but the temp stayed rock solid just below 180 and oil pressure ran...

Almost Home!

After Coinjock, we spent a night on the Portsmouth free dock, on the South basin, while a very active T-storm rolled through. From there, we took a short day (18 nm) to get to Salt Ponds Marina,...

I agree. You most likely have a clog in the coolant loop. If the thermostat was stuck, you'd still be getting some heat in the HX from the manifold. The most frequent clog sites are any elbows in the...
