New Engine Installation

Don''t be silly! The assumed benefits of an inboard engine could never outweigh the real benefits of an outboard motor. It is my personal opinion that there is no sailboat less than 30 feet that needs an inboard and some larger ones would do well with an outboard. If you really want an inboard engine, buy a powerboat! At least that way it becomes more acceptable to look at your boat for what it is: a support platform for the engine!
