The old engine was running, but it was 30 years old and burning a bit of oil. With extended sailing in the future for us, we decided to pull the trigger on a new engine.
Out with the old, in with the new. Yanmar for Yanmar.
We replaced the old Max Prop with a new one. (And kept the old one as a spare.) While we were at it, we also installed a new cutlass bearing, prop shaft, shift and throttle cables, N2K link to the chart plotter, muffler, exhaust hose and new larger exhaust thru-hull. She’s running strong.
