Thanks Jim; The boat is being hauled out Wednesday and if all is ok with the survey I'll close the deal on the boat. The motor is listed as a M30 Universal which is 24 HP @ 2800.
I'll scrape the bottom and prop when the boat is out so I get the best miles per gallon I can during the trip. Sneeds Ferry NC to Washington , NC, 120 miles and I'm planning on 3 days power sailing. I have a Clipper 30 with a 10hp gas so this is my first venture in a larger sailboat with a Diesel engine. I plan on doing an oil change and all the filters before I start and also have a full tank of fuel. If you can e mail picture of your Allmand 31 send them to email@example.com
