Our Volvo-Penta MD11C two cylinder Saildrive had no compression or power.
30 year-old Volvo parts are hard to come by and we waited nearly 9 months for components to replace the cylinder liners and rings. After all this time we bit the bullet and purchased a modern 4 cylinder saildrive for $13k A hard decision but full time ocean cruising demands a reliable auxillary in the boat.
We'll have that soon, launch day is fast approaching and our Niagara 35Mk1 will have wings with that 39 hp !!!
