Re: Yanmar mounted on Volvo Bed

Our boat used to have an A-4 and it now has a 3gm30f.
Two large pieces of angle iron were bolted to the old fiberglass runners and some after market engine mounts were used to mount the engine. The mounts offer a bit of adjustment for alignment. Seems to work quite well, with little to no vibration.
I've put Chevy engines in Fords, so anything is possible.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
