Fake or Real? A Spares Nightmare......
We look at the spares market for filters & oil after a hard lesson learned.
Helping David with a filter change the other day became a nightmare when the fuel filter would not fit. Luckily I had two extra filters on board of the same type. Both his Bosch filters appeared to have a manufacturing fault. A couple of days later I was checking our spares locker and found two more Bosch filters that were also faulty. Doing a little research I found that these filters were fake. We only paid a couple of pounds for them each but for almost the same money we could have had genuine Mann or Perkins Filters. I knew that fake oil was an issue in Turkey and had checked with Castrol how to check the 18ltrs we got in the spring, but, oil, filters and other fake parts are on the increase as we all seek to get the best value. We finally fit the DP switch for the AGM charger and I finally find the bit of music I was looking for.
Welcome to our channel.
We are now in season 6
In 2018 we left the UK to sail around the world slowly. After Brexit, a "Pandemic" and major heart surgery we are still sailing, documenting our travels and showing you what we have learned so far.
We are hoping to complete our journey, and travel right around the world even if we have had a few setbacks along the way. We will continue at our own pace and that may be fast or slow. We want to be sure not to miss anything and have stories to tell our grandchildren when we are old and grey.
Sail Safe Guys, Ant & Cid.
We do have a second channel YOUR DRONE TV It is a mix of music from classical to blues, from Opera to Punk all with stunning drone footage.
