i would check two things re odour.

1) bilge - are you getting any water in the bilge?
2) water tank - my smells awful - and i need to swap out the water lines - a future project as I don't use the tank...

I'm a happy owner although I'd agree the <10hp diesel is a bit wimpy for a tough current in some inlet.
The only problem I have is an odor issue. Apparently the P.O. left the holding tank full for several years of yard storage. I was told the hoses can get saturated, and I tried the wipe-with-a-rag-and-smell test, but didn't get an obvious blast of stink. The tank is pretty well obscured behind bulkheads so off season I guess I'll start pulling components til I get there. It's not a fresh sewage odor. It's just a vague acrid rankness that I can't pinpoint.
The beat goes on, the beat goes on...

The grocery stores the super mart, uh huh
Little girls still break their hearts, uh huh
And men still keep on marching off to war
Electrically they keep a baseball score

The beat goes on, the beat goes on...
