|Aeolus has a new slip at Cap Sante in Anacortes, WA|
So we did that back in October. This weekend I went up with my boys to change fluids and do some maintenance. Time for oil, transmission too, and changing of the raw water impeller.
|This is the old impeller with 600 hours and 3 years old. No real sign of trouble.|
Aeolus is in fine shape. Changing the transmission oil remains a breeze thanks to my installation of the oil drain hose. The raw water impeller is an Oberdorfer and has a retaining clip that can be a bit tricky. It had been 3 years and about 600 engine hours since I last changed it but honestly, the old one looked like new. No cracking or signs of decay. Glad I changed it anyway, but next time I make take it out to 1000 hours. Need to check what Oberdorfer says.
Can't wait to go back and get out on her. This was just a maintenance trip. The boys and I had a great time, as always.
