Hi David,

I've got a Yanmar 10 hp YGM-12 diesel. It was rebuilt in 1999 and runs well. I only had to change the oil and tighten the alternator fan a bit. We lost the Genoa last fall in a storm when it unfurled and blew out. Got a new Northsails 135 a couple of weeks ago. It went up smoothly and fits well. Nice sail. I'll probably have to replace the main in a year or two, and I've only looked at the spinnaker, but I don't think it's been used much, if at all.

No, there's no berth above the settee on my boat. Just a small locker above.

Thanks for the welcome. We've been working on Rikki and hope to get her in prime condition by next spring (topsides and bottom paint and the like).

Wally
