Thanks for the reply DL. My wife and I were in Sidney a few weeks ago with our boat. We did see a very nice 2I8 while we were there but the owners were not around. It had a brown dodger. It would have been great to be able to talk with you. We spent three weeks in the Gulf Islands and our Volvo barely got us home. We are going to repower our boat starting sometime this month. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a lot of the work myself and save a little money. I am trying to decide between the Yanmar 3YM20 and the Beta Marine 16 or 20 HP models. Did you consider the Beta Marine? Which prop did you use? Is it a two or three blade model? If you have any words of wisdom concerning the install, or any pictures I would love to hear and/or see them. E-mail me if you like.
