Squadron 42 Transport

Postby waggysenior » Thu Aug 09, 2018 7:19 am

Hi Everyone
I'm new to the Forum, and recently bought a beautiful Squadron 42 (2013). We're having her shipped over to Italy to new cruising grounds, around Elba. Loaded her yesterday onto SevenStars Yacht Express. Impressive technology; you drive in and they then pump out the water from their deck and secure your boat on a cradle; so no crane required.
Anyway, I was advised to run the engines up (Volvo Penta D6s) when clear of the water and in the cradle, to empty the exhaust manifolds. Then I had to drain the silencers.
Can anyone please tell me what the start up procedure should be, when we offload her next week? I'm guessing that provided she's afloat, a normal start up will get the water back into these systems, but I'm a bit of a 'mechanical duffer', so not sure.
