That makes more sense than what your mechanic is doing IMHO. It would make sense to require heavier motor mounts on the side that gets loaded when in operation. By doing what your mechanic is doing, I think the engine will tend to twist when in operation, since the forward end is supported more lightly than the back end—the torque on the forward end of the engine is equal to that of the torque on the back end of the engine...Besides, I think Yanmar has a bit more experience installing Yanmars than your mechanic.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
