When you do think about getting that Chiefs ticket should you go the " upmarket " route, i.e. Uni route take a tip from your uncle Merl. and ensure you don't end up with that BC endorsement.
CEBC don't sound so good over here.

Port Engine always started first time, every so often the Starboard engine would refuse to start and have to be barred over to get it to start, always seemed to happen when you were called out of bed at 2 in the morning to shift ship round Aberdeen Harbour.......
I checked the distributor timing, according to the makers manual, and overhauled all the air start valves, but the problem remained.
Any ideas what the problem was?
