My starboard motor started losing prime at idle. Bulb would empty, but only at idle. I have a switch on my tanks, so I flip-flopped the source tank. Sure enough, port motor now had the same issue.

Thinking all kinds of bad things, I queued up Shane Livingston for possible help, but went ahead and changed the fuel filter.

Viola'! Problem solved. This filter only has about 50 hours on it but somehow developed a leak or got stopped up. Very little moisture in the fuel I sampled. But there was some weird goop that looks a little like lard in the top of the filter? Wondering if the fuel additives at my marina is gelling or something.

My windlass stopped working. Could hear the solenoids clicking but no spinning. I was about to pull the control box out but figured I'd better check the voltage just in case. No voltage, switch in the engine room was off. Turn switch on, windlass works. Of course I figured it out after my 23 year son dropped/pulled the anchor up by hand twice.
