    Will definitely look into the rails. Anything that will keep costs down will help. Step and bulkhead you’re outta here!

    Always liked The tool man Taylor. More power sounds great, I just hope I do more of an AL install than a Tim Taylor install Thank you for the links to the articles and for the advice.

    Currently having issues with an old yanmar ysm12. Called the local yanmar dealer to see how much it would cost to Replace the old yanmar in my 1978 Hunter with a new yanmar.

    Slow turning Yanmar ysm12 on 1978 Hunter 30.

    Update on Starter. Been working like a champ. Gets the yanmar going fairly easy. However, I noticed that oil has started leaking from where the starter joins the flywheel. Seems to only happen when gear in forward or reverse. There was this flimsy gasket prior to adding new starter. I...

    I tightened all the bolts and connections that seemed like they could be loose. Took the oil cap and dip stick off and put them back on. After about 1.5hrs of cleaning the boat with engine off. I tried turning on the little yanmar again and fired up right away. This time the buzzer/alarm didn't...

    Repower with Westerbeke or Yanmar?

    Good points, from what I remember when speaking to the guy he said he pulled it out of a storm salvaged boat. That’s his business from what I understand.

    I have looked at and considered BETA. Unfortunately, haven't found a used one with low hours and price like this WB though. I'm in the Seabrook/Kemah, TX area. If you or anyone knows of a used Beta in good shape let me know.
