I be a new member and landlocked for sure...(for now)
I'm a 62 Year Old died in the wool sailor living in Sausalito, California. We're on the water and in a houseboat with our little Albin 25, Sea Fox tied up at our tiny dock in the rear. This is a good life..
My plight!! Right now we're faced with repowering our Albin as it's old and crusted Volvo MD3b has gone over the side. Raw Water Cooling has it's curse and this was the end of our MD3b for sure.
REPOWER!! That's the plan..
So we're looking for a better fresh water cooled Diesel, 35 HP or better, no less..
Best would be a good used and complete with instrument panel, gearbox, etc. YANMAR 3JH4E, hopefully with CCW from the Stern rotation, and 2.3 ratio.
THAT'S AN AWFUL LOT TO ASK
when one is looking for a good used engine...
That's my story and I'm sticking to it..
