Jul 30, 2014: Refuel and Rework

Today was a quick maintenance-run to the marina, to fill-up the Rose’s fuel and water tanks, empty the holding tank, general cleaning, plus investigate some intermittent TPS-errors in the starboard engine’s computer for an upcoming get-together…

Manual testing of the starboard engine’s TPS (throttle position sensor) showed no significant problems, perhaps a minor calibration issue, but no drop-outs or railed readings were noted. Purchase of a new TPS to have on-hand is likely anyway…

On the way to the marina for fuel, today was near-perfect weather, 30JUL14

Fill-up and pump-out took more than half an hour, partially due to the amount of fuel taken on and some venting-issues in the starboard fuel-tank slowing things up too. This winter’s lay-up will address the starboard vent.

Christina's first fill-up since June 28th, 95.4nm later. That works out to 0.65nm/gal! Ouch! Christina's tanks are completely full, for the moment anyway...

As said above, 147.1-gallons of petrol after 95.4nm (109.7-miles) works out to 0.65nm/gal (0.75mpg) since her last fill-up. Except for the cost of fuel, today was a spectacular day to be out on the boat doing anything, even maintenance! Happy Wakes! Feel free to drop me a note anytime, ChristinaRose@edickent.com
