Every winter, OTTER has been inside-stored.
Completed Spring 2017:
Fall, 2016, the port engine was found to have had a long-term water leak in one of the exhaust systems, allowing cooling water to enter the outboard aft cylinder and cause corrosion and pitting. A new ‘long block’ was installed over the winter (comprising cylinder block, crankshaft, pistons, cylinder head, injectors, oil cooler and valve gear). Apart from the external accessories and fuel system this is essentially a new engine. During this work, the turbocharger was also replaced as well as both exhaust manifolds.
This work carries a six month warranty, with unlimited hours, on both parts and labor.
Following completion of the work, the CAT dealer performing the above pressure tested the cooling system and the vessel was sea-trialed. Both engines ran correctly with the correct operating temperature and full RPM.
At the same time the A/C system was completely replaced with a new MarineAir system comprising 12,000 BTU compressor, evaporator and ‘SmartTouch’ keypad control.

OTTER's current owner commissioned the well-known Cumberland Ironworks, Pownal, ME, to design and custom fabricate OTTER's hardtop.The entire hardtop was subsequently completed and installed by a craftsman at Cove Landing Marine, Lyme, CT. There are (6) dimmer controlled interior down-lights, and aft, are (6) dimmer controlled wash lights for the cockpit. The full enclosure allows exceptional visibility, light and extra headroom. It can be either opened for ventilation, or closed, when helmsman and guests need protection from the elements.
The exterior teak cockpit allows room for guest seating on the aft-facing seat, on deck chairs or on the coaming. There is a cockpit shower and a transom door leading to the teak swim platform with swim ladder.
