takes more than good thoughts and a yearly oil change to keep your genset
By Richard Thiel
Years ago I chartered a Tolleycraft for a cruise around Washington State’s
San Juan Islands. Although the boat had seen considerable use, she was
a sturdy old girl and eminently reliable, with one notable exception:
her genset. Located in the lazarette, right under an indifferently sealed
hatch, it was constantly showered by sea water. Consequently, the thing
looked like it had just been dredged out of some sunken World War II U-boat.
And ran like it, too.
