In this guide, you will learn how to start the R/V Calypso’s engines. It will also include up to date tutorials on each system of the vessel

Auxiliary Engines

In order to start the main engines you need power. To get this power we will start the GM 2-71 Aux generator.

Step 1 – Starter Power

You need to turn on the batteries that provide power to the generators starter.


Step 2 – Fuel Valve

Next you need to provide fuel to the generator in order for it to start. Turn the ‘DAILY USE STARBOARD TANK VALVE’


Step 3 – Start the generator

Now its time to start the Generator to start producing power!


Step 4 – Cut In

Now that the generator is producing power we have to cut it in to the systems.

Head over to the engine room Annex and go to the blue panel. Make sure the light is on and turn the key ‘GM 2-71 20kw GENERATOR CUT-IN’

Next flip the breakers labeled ‘ENGINE ROOM BREAKER’ and ‘ENGINE ROOM ANNEX BREAKER’

Main Engines and Generators

Now it’s time start the main engines. Head back to the engine room and flip on the lights.

Step 1 – Air compressor

in order to start the main engines we need compressed air. The compressed air is what starts the pistons turning effectively ‘bump’ starting the engines.

The pressure gauge will slowly start to increase. You can start one engine at 7 BAR but it is best to wait until 10.42 BAR.

While that is filling up we’ll continue the start up.


Step 2 – Sea Chests

Sea chests are holes in the bottom of the boat that pump in sea water which is used to cool the fresh water which in turn cools the main engines.

To open these first close the drain by turning off the water cooler drains.

Next turn on the sea chest valve

Repeat the process for the port side


Step 3 – Fuel Valve

Next it is time to open the other fuel valve


Step 4 – Starting air and Engine Fuel Cutoff

Head over the the ‘AIR START TANK PRESSURE’ Gauge and make sure it’s 10.42 BAR. (You can start one engine with at least 7 BAR)

If it is 10.42 BAR head over to both of the main engines and turn on the fuel cutoff valves


Step 5 – Start A Engine!

On one of the engines turn on the ‘AIR STARTING VALVE’

The engine should start.


Step 6 – Start A Main Generator

While we wait for the starting air to build back up head over to the GM 6-71 generator on the same side that the engine you just started is on. Turn the ignition on.


Step 7 – Start The Last Engine!

By now the starting should have built back up enough so head over to the next engine and turn its ‘AIR STARTING VALVE’ to on


Step 8 – Start A Main Generator

Head over to the GM 6-71 generator on the same side that the engine you just started is on. Turn the ignition on.


Step 9 – Turn off Air Compressor

On our way to the Engine Annex turn off the starting air compressor


Step 10 – POWERRRR!

In the engine annex room, turn on both Generator cut in keys.

Next flip all the breakers on


Step 11 – Shut down aux gen

Finally we shut down the aux generator as we don’t need it anymore. But first we need to cut it out of the system.

Turn the cut in key to off

Then Flip off the breakers

Finally you can turn off the GM 2-71


Step 12 – Transfer Controls

Turn both Engine Clutch and Transfer Control to bridge for both the port and starboard engines

Misc Engine Systems

Finally We can turn on the bilges, fresh water distiller and the fridge compressor.

Step 1 – Bilge Pump

Turn on the ‘BILGE AND FIRE PUMP’


Step 2 – Turn off aux batteries

Flip the aux engine starter batteries breaker to off


Step 3 – Fresh Water

Turn on the fresh water distiller (You will need this for heating) Also note that this uses a lot of power

then head over to the water heater feed pump and turn it on


Step 4 – The Fridge

Head into the engine annex room and flip the compressor power breaker to on

Finally flip the Compressor on
