"Troubleshooting Challenges and Solutions: Day 2 of "Isuzu, Yanmar, and Mitsubishi Marine Diesel Engine Removal"


haaahhh ... never mess with the weather and never expect to win against the power of nature. Weather forecast of the sea is not always what is portrayed.


I asked one of them fishermen at the port to kindly drive the ship to the dismantling location and he agreed upon it. The only reason we asked him because we couldn't handle the waves of the sea during the time. He was a great guy who had 40 years of experience so I was glad to leave matters on his hands. That ship had the Yanmar 6GX-ET engine on it which our customer bought it from us in advance.


During 1st of March, 2024, we were planning to pull the ships but our captain faced troubles while he was on his way in the car to the port - basically his car broke down. When it comes to pulling ships, you have to always leave early from your expected time or else you will always unexpected time delays; therefore, when we arrived at the port, we were initially planning to pull three ships at once but I guess that was a bit too much so we planned to pull two ships.


The issue was that it took too much time, more than we expected. First, we arrived late due to our captain's car breaking down. Second, the ship that we were suppose to ride, lets call it, Yabanimaru, the battery was down. We couldn't get a new battery on time because the retail shop was too far so we had to boost up our batteries by asking another fishermen to bring his ship closer to ours in order to jump start the engine. Third, one of the ships was moored right next to ours, which was perfect but the other one was on the other side. To bring that ship next to ours, it took us another hour. Fourth, we then realized that the ship that there was a huge fuel leak on Yabanimaru's engine so we had to fix that, which also took another hour. Finally, to arrange the ropes for pulling the ships also took another hour hahaha (it is easy to say but reality hits different).


By the time we were planning to leave, it was getting dark and our captain said that it is better off we do it on another day. The only issue with that is that our dismantling project starts on the 4th till the 8th, and the only time when the weather is calm is on the 5th so we have to, no matter what, pull the ships on the 5th to the dismantling location.


A day before this whole mess was going on, we had a chance to drive Yabanimaru around just to check if the engine was in a healthy condition, so here's a short video of the ride.
