A note about the engines:
Actual engines hours are unknown, current hourmeters indicate 3,600 (P) and 2,500 (S) hours, but they are not the original meters. During Winter 2009, a significant maintenance upgrade was performed by NC Machinery with the objective of extending the life of the engines another 3000 plus hours. Work included replacing the raw water systems (new sea strainers, raw water pumps, custom made heat exchangers mounted off the engines), new engine mounts, new exhaust systems and rebuilt injector pumps. The engines operate with no apparent problems, run great and should survey well.
