 A       WARNING: 00 not work on machinery when you
 are mentally or physically incapaCitated by fatigue!

Many of the preceding safety tips and warnings are repeated
in your Operators Manual along with other cautions and
notes to highlight critical information. Read your manual
carefully, maintain your equipment, and follow all safety
Preparations to install a gasoline engine or generator should
begin with a thorough examination of the American Boat and
Yacht Council's (ABYC) standards. These standards are from
a combination of sources including the USCG and the NFPA.
Sections of the ABYC standards of particular interest are:
H-2 Ventilation
H-24 Gasoline fuel systems
P-l Exhaust systems
P-4 Inboard engines
E-9 DC Electrical systems
All installations must comply with the Federal Code of
Regulations (FCR).

                                                         Engines & Generators
When installing WESTERBEKE engines and generators it is important that strict
attention be paid to the following information:

Strict federal regulations, ABYC guidelines, and safety codes must be complied with
when installing engines and generators in a marine environment.

For installations where the exhaust manifold/water injected exhaust elbow is close to
or below the vessel's waterline, provisions must be made to install a siphon-break in
the raw water supply hose to the exhaust elbow. This hose must be looped a minimum
of 18" above the vessel's waterline. Failure to use a siphon-break when the exhaust
manifold injection port is at or below the load waterline will result in raw water
damage to the engine and possible flooding of the boat.

The exhaust hose must be certified for marine use. The system must be designed to
prevent water from entering the exhaust under any sea conditions and at any angle
of the vessels hull.

       A detailed 40 page Marine Installation Manual covering gasoline and
       diesel, engines and generators, is available from your WESTERBEKE

 tests with the engine off:
 1. Using a voltmeter, connect the voltmeter red wire clip to
    the output terminal B+.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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 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.
