Re: Westerbeke vs Yanmar
They're actually Mitsubishi engines.
To be honest, if I had to repower, I'd probably go with what was readily available, like Yanmar. What had readily available parts. I like the Westerbeke, but I take care of the thing. Parts are readily available from the handful of dealers, but the cost is insane. $15 for an oil filter? I get the same thing from the auto parts store for $3.
So you could count me as 1 Yanmar and 1 for Westerbeke. Sorry.
