Greetings from a new member living aboard his yacht powered by a OM615 mercedes motor

Hello fellow mercedes benz owners, from Keith. A retired farmer and school teacher living aboard my yacht the sv "surfmachine", in the tropical zone of the Indian ocean around Western Sumatra and the Malaccan straights. Presently anchored in Langkawi, Malaysia.
The yacht was made in the Feltz shipyard in Hamburf and is fitted with a marinsed, sole, Mercedes OM615 motor, that is getting pretty tired.

Just returned from a 8 month sailing cruise of the west coast of Thailand and the west coast of Sumatra, particularly, the offshore islands of Simuelue, Banyaks, Bankgaru, Nias, Telos, Mentawis. Where I was surfing and living on my boat.

Cheers from Keith.
