Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks OQ, I'm gradually on the improve. Yesterday the Queensland State Government closed down recreational boating as a COVID-19 management measure, which I support, given local red-neck social-distance defying red-neck boating parties.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks matus for posting, and please share a pic or two of 'Elbow Grease''? She's a head turner. OQ, I haven't forgotten your questions. It's just that the world seems to be shaking a little loose at the moment, and at the local Noosa level, I feel a need to slug it out with some self-appointed 'opi...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks Nobeach and OQ. In these times, much appreciated. :D Do you know what was the cause of the overheating and the cure? This afternoon I started drafting a response to OQ's question. While doing so, I recalled that in face of engine overheating in the closed loop coolant system, while conducting...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

After 10 days of self-imposed house isolation and occasional Skinnydip wilderness sorties, I've been unable to shake a cold. So today I telephone consulted my quack, and am now on a course of antibiotics to clear things up before corana can get a clear crack at me. I received the following from a fr...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Do you know what was the cause of the overheating and the cure? Short answer, a stuffed raw water impellor cured by replacement. A fuller explanation of how I initially missed this, then compounded the problem by micro trouble-shooing the closed loop coolant system rather than the raw water system,...
