Then he fiddled with some settings, senders, and switches on all the electronics he installed the past 3 months. Turns out the engine was not, in fact, overheating, but readers and displays thingys weren't in sync. Which is always good news.
I drove most of the day while Russ tracked down all little hiccups and fixed them, and it kept him busy almost the entire time.
|What it's like to be me.|
- Engine overheating (faulty sender)
- Missing AIS data (reseated the inline fuse)
- "Drunken sailor" auto-pilot AND the "speed source fault" error from the autopilot (change speed source to GPS from Tachometer, which he thinks was the default when it couldn't find the AIS information, and that made her stay true. Go figure.)
- "High pressure" reading on the starboard engine (oddly tied to the next problem, so keep reading...)
- House batteries weren't charging (At some point Russ had switched together both engine starter batteries, probably trying to troubleshoot our engine issues back in December. Once he disconnected them, the house started to charge just fine and the starboard oil pressure reading returned to normal.)
