Updated Features

  • In August of 2008, the port engine suffered a failure, as a result of a known CAT defect with the engines after cooler on this model engine. The failure of the after cooler caused the ingestion of raw water into the motor. The port motor went through a complete rebuild by Pereira Diesel in Miami FL. Through the investigation to determine the cause of the port motor failure, the starboard motor was also inspected, it was determined the after cooler was likely to suffer a similar failure which caused the owner to replace the after cooler on the starboard motor in an effort to prevent starboard motor suffering similar fate of the port motor. At that time the hour meters report approximately 1850, the port engine failure occurred at approximately 1700 hours. At the time of the port motor being rebuilt the after coolers were changed to a new CAT upgraded after cooler, in addition and subsequent to the August 2008 event the turbo chargers on both engines have been replaced. The port motor had approximately 200 hours and the starboard motor had approximately 1850 hours.
