Checklist to bring engine alive (after +3 yrs winterized)
I'll be waking up a +3yrs winterized boat in the very next weeks.
Your check-list will be important to decide the business.
Regarding to engine (merc 260hp MPI bravo 3), maintenance will be done before waking up and following items will be replaced:
- oil replace (engine and leg)
- filters (oil and gas)
- spark plugs
- exhaust gaskets (I want to open exhaust system to visually inspect manifolds and risers)
- I will be present when they remove spark plugs and oils (to check water presence).
Now, I would like to hear opinions from you.
Besides this, what else should I check/pay attention on engine/leg when running it after all this time?
And what about comfort systems? She is equiped with black water tank, macerator, heated water, stove+mw+sink... what should I double-check?
Electronics (VHF, GPS, sounder), etc?
Any idea will be welcome!
