After the exhaust was replaced by the boat yard (not to be named but starts with S) I had trouble with water getting into the engine. They had routed it such that the toe rail was the high point so any time I put the rail in the water, I got water in the engine. I re-routed it so that the high point is mid-ship at the transum. No problem since then.

looking forward. The engine compartment is down and to the right of this view
The two small hoses go to the air lock located right on the bulkhead in the port lazerette at the high-inbord spot.
This exhaust system was installed about 7 years ago
Top view of engine -- Notice the nice protective iron oxide coating. I can't wait until all that nasty paint falls off!
Update: The head and exhaust manafold got some new paint when I replaced the head gasket.
If you want to know how to drill out broken head bolts, email me.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
