Well ... it begins ... the Westerbeke has shown signs of age in oil pressure and temperature and with many tries to mitigate these symptoms it has been concluded that the "Tooth" would be best served by repowering. It sounds like a short and sweat decision, but took much deliberation and stress and deep digging in to the pocket book to make this decision to go ahead in this direction.
We decided to return to Fernandina Beach to Tiger Point Marina to have this work done. We are most comfortable with them and they with us ... so that really helps .. the mechanics and yard staff are great and the family owned atmosphere is a bonus. The overall cost will only become apparent once everything is out and the new one is in with all auxiliary works completed.
It begins .... (photos coming soon)
