We had a mechanic on board today to have a look, he got the engine running, and running good. All it was at the end, are dirty fuel deposits, which clogged the fuel lines. Probably this happened because all the dirt in the deposits got shook up by the waves. Big relief for us since it is no serious problem. So today I have been upside down in one of the two deposits and cleaning it (shit work). Deposit two tomorrow. Also we have to renew some of the wireing of the motor, seems like it's loosing some current along the old cables. But the verdict of the mechanic was: it's an old but good engine, that sounds good in our ears. So hopefully we will be able to go out soon again.
