Did the diesel faill because of the angle of heel?
yes i'm pretty sure,he ran in some very nasty stuff...He was trying to sail in the south from New-Brundwick Canada and when he was off Nova-scotia he ran in a storm.( not sure if it was a actual storm but thats how he called it...) I think he was trying to get away from a lee shore so he started the motor to mortor-sail and then he lost he's motor.

2 stroke gas engines are almost dead because of emissions regulations.
That make sense, a couple of my buddies were complaining a while ago about some laws that were gonna kill the 2-stroke motocross.
