F&c 44 #12

I have just heard about this thread.
I own 1979 Hull #12, I love this beautiful boat, but just like any other love affair, it is not perfect.
I did have a hydraulic hose burst at the worst possible time in a very tight anchorage, going against a fast moving tide all forward momentum was lost. Best recommendation always carry a sharp knife to cut the anchor loose fast.
I am currently having problems with the original 4-108 and would be very interested in engine replacement recommendations, particularly if it could included the elimination of the hydraulic transmission. I am not quite clear how there is room to place the engine forward without major carpentry.
Also I did have a full dodger installed which I felt was badly needed.
Kiskedee originally from the East Coast now lives in Morro Bay California. I am not sure if there are any other F&C 44’s located on the West Coast since Roy Disney’s Shamrock was sold.
