Back in the Water

2013 Van Kedisi Yat Lift
After weeks of work it was time for Van Kedisi to return to the Mediterranean. This likely is the last time that VK is lifted out of the Yat Lift yard near Bodrum, Turkey.

I anchored off the castle in Bodrum and started up the new water maker I just finished installing. The lift pump would not start. It kept blowing fuses. I took it apart, freed up the impeller and polished the inside. We now have a working water maker.

The thing chugs away at 1200 rpm and produces 30 gph (136 L/hr) against advertised 38 gph (173 L/hr). They always take a best case scenario!
