Re: 1977 ODAY Repowering options Questions

A quick look on Yachtworld showed ODay 27s with an Atomic 4, a small Yanmar diesel, and an outboard. A new diesel is going to run you more than what you probably paid for the boat. Even a rebuilt A4 is going to run several thousand dollars. A conversion from gas to diesel (or vice versa) is going to be a lot of work. Easiest and least expensive would be to go outboard.
