Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

The raw water impeller should not have a thermostat or any kind of water restriction. Should pump water through the heat exchanger unchecked other than the sand trap. Air being sucked into the system could burn it up. That could happen when there is a restriction and then you go to WOT that restrict...

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 f...

Re: Bruce Crandall Flyer Hydroplane

I do not know anything about motorcycle engines but what you pointed out and named seems to be correct. The only one questionable would be the speed sensor but it has the correct number of wires compared to your wiring diagrams.

Re: Bruce Crandall Flyer Hydroplane

OQ, I wonder if if wouldn't be easier for Peter to build a harness from a raw connecter. I've done that for Chevy ECU but had the pin out diagram in hand from other folks. Might that be the option here? I was noting that the diagram share the engine harness routing with the chassis wiring, would be...

Re: Bruce Crandall Flyer Hydroplane

Looks very straight forward. Uses the crank sensor to know where TDC is at, so that is needed so the ECU knows when to fire the injectors and plugs. You need the MAP sensor, Inlet air temp sensor, the eng. coolant temp sensor, (EDIT: it may fire up without the temp sensors but will run like poop) Th...

Re: V12 Build In Texas - Sprit Rig Info

I think it needs rum in place of the dagger. :lol: Things I think are critical: 1. Lace to the mast LOOSE. Like super loose. 2. Use a down haul on the mast not a halyard. 3. Once you know where the sprit goes, run the snotter through a block. Helps to douse sail on the water. 4. You do not need it b...

More prosaically, Skinnydip can do what she was commissioned to do: push through many a soft sand or mud bank without overheating. Phew!
Great news you were able to enjoy the day in a well built watercraft.

Do you know what was the cause of the overheating and the cure?
