We have a gifted day of sunny and warm weather. Due to the past weeks of bitter cold, the boat had not been started for a while. We took the opportunity of warm weather, tolerable to be outside for an extended period of time, to warm up the engines.
Both engines had a sluggish start. Each engine took two attempts before firing up.
We idled engines until they had warmed up to operating temperature. Once warm, we let them sit and warm some more.
Both engines flushed at end of warm up.
