Engines

Cummins QSK 19M • 1320hp

Generators

Put generator to Manual to start
Coolant expansion tanks at Fidley
Battery selector for generator/tow winch=either one, wired common. Port=1, starboard=2.

Air

Air compressor tanks on Fidley. Drains underneath. Close/open the  valves closest to tanks for use. That’s it. No other valves. Idea is to keep air pressure, so if needed you can start engines faster.

Miscellaneous

All coolant expansion tanks at Fidley (4)

Bilges & Plumbing

Fresh water manifold (4 tanks, only 2 used) right above bilge manifold.
Center two tanks stay open. Wing tanks stay closed.
2 inboard water tanks sightglasses aft bulkhead center.
4 bilge suctions.
Bilge pump is starboard. Oily mixture pump (to deck) is port.
Sea chest under small round deckplate to stbd of manifold, has its own valve on manifold too.

Fuel & Oil

2 fuel tanks only at forward bulkhead.
Fuel tank valves left open = free flow between.
No way to pump between tanks. Fill on deck both sides.
Fuel transfer pump is only to hose in Fidley.
Small yellow pipes, Port side is open, Starboard side closed = Return lines I think. So using port tank as day tank I think.
Fuel fills on deck next to vents, forward corner house.
