February 4, 2018

The Discoverer suffered a setback during her trip on February 4 as one of her Yamaha F150’s blew up.

This oil pump assembly cracked, and in a matter of seconds seized up the crankshaft, flywheel, and stator.

We expect to have the battleship repaired and back in the water this week.

Big thanks to our pal Jamie at Tidewater Boat Works in Jacksonville to help us locate some hard-to-find parts for this repair, and of course big praise is due to Oldemar our Costa Rica Yamaha Mechanic.
