EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA (Contd)
LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS (Contd)
BATTERY COMPARTMENT--Consist of three sub compartments as follows:
(1) Port side compartment: Consists of two batteries, lubricity filter, inspection
light, master fuse link, blocking diode, FM200 fire detection alarm sounder,
and two utility connection plugs for the FM200 fire extinguisher system and
(2) Center compartment: Consists of fuel tank, fuel filler cap with dipstick, fuel
return hose, two fuel water separators, port and starboard fuel shut-off
valves, and one master fuel shut-off valve located below and between the
port and starboard fuel shut-off valves.
(3) Starboard side compartment: Consists of master battery switch, lubricity
filter, two batteries, blocking diode, emergency link solenoid, master fuse
link, and a NATO slave receptacle that provides electrical power for starting
the boat when batteries are not charged.
transmission coolers and diesel engines. Port side engine compartment fire
extinguisher, FWD bilge pump, keel cooler inlet, outlet, flush hose connections,
exhaust hoses and tubes, and coolant reservoirs.
DRIVE SHAFTS--Located under the aft cockpit. The two drive shafts
transfer power from transmissions to hydrojets.
FM200 FIRE EXTINGUISHER SYSTEM--The fire extinguisher bottle is
located in the engine compartment adjacent to the port engine on the hull
sidewall. If a fire is detected, the contents of the fire bottle are discharged
KEEL COOLERS--Centrally located underneath the boat, the keel coolers
are part of a closed-loop cooling system that cools the engines, engine oil,
mounted on the bottom of hull.
HYDROJET INLET GRILLS--Located at stern under the boat. The hydrojet
inlet grills provide a screen system to help protect the hydrojets from ingesting
objects that may cause damage to the hydrojets.
HYDROJET--The hydrojet is a propulsion unit located on the transom with
directional nozzles and scoops. The propulsion units propel and steer the boat.
The hydrojets supply a raw water cooling system for the boat.
