Re: Westerbeke vs Yanmar

Are all Westerbekes back-a$$ mounted? I recall doing a "Rescue" delivery, " sail it home for me" engine is broke, and that one was in backwards v drive. I hate that system.
Well, I may have come full cricle. I just read that La Ceiba shipyard is also now a Yanmar dealer. Yay for me because I'm sure I want a Yanmar, but having the dealer, mechanic that installed it, and all that close to home was worth looking at the Westy's. I learned a lot here regardless. I come across these Westy's every once in a while on deliveries, so the more i know about their pro's and cons the better. Thanks again all.
