Re: Yanmar mounted on Volvo Bed

the yanmar will not bolt up the hole in the hull so it will require some glass work. if you are limited on time the best bet is to do the mod with the yanmar saildrive bed and glass it into the hull as per yanmar specs. it is not a hard job if you have good access but it is a technical one to mate the bed to your hull. modifying the mount could be done but there would be some trial fitting and and design work to do and that can take longer then just doing it the proven way. remember every time you change one thing on a boat it will require you to change ten other things you did not think about.
