I should have followed my gut instinct and done more to the engine when we took delivery of her back in April.  In getting ready for Swiftsure, David found this-
The one on the right is the new one.  Duh, right?  We motored from White Rock, BC to Seattle with the impeller looking like this.  The engine temp never climbed above normal even when heading into 5 foot waves for hours bashing home down the Sound.  Now I have impeller parts in the heat exchanger.  Grrr.
On the plus side, the winches are nearing completion.  Thanks to my good friends!!  Next week this time, we'll be in Victoria getting ready to race!!
