A sceptical looking captain and his generator
This machine has one functionality; Produce 220 Volt - primarily so that we can charge the batteries, but of course also for using our dishwasher, washing machine, vacuum cleaner and so on.
This engine has been an everlasting problem ever since we bought Temerity. But now it is a major problem since we anchor as much as we can and are absolutely dependent on it working. When not working we have to go to harbor every 3 nights. Before the problem was electric, but now it stopped due to water in the oil - bad work from an engineer in Lanzarote.
Everything is now fixed - but we are crossing our fingers every time we start the generator!!
My good friend and sailor from Australia, Hans once told me that he considered throwing the Genset overboard and use it as a mooring!! So it is not only us having this problem.
