Upgrades to Kismet
We did many upgrades including:
- new hydraulic helm and cylinder
- autopilot installation
- chart plotter installation
- various cosmetic upgrades
The diesel tanks had been a problem, much muck in their bottoms. When the seas get rough and the boat gets rolling, the muck gets stirred up and the fuel filters quickly clog. Fuel polishing was tried but didn't do the trick. We cut access ports in the tops to give them a good cleaning. Three ports because of two tank baffles.
