---MARCH 2013---YANMAR REPOWER??!! Still looking to locate any Islander 29 groups-or current owners. Removed the Atomic Four and want to replace it with a used Yanmar 2GMF diesel. Would like to hook up with other I-29'ers for hints and quirks, suggestions and experiences. Used to own another Islander 29 about 15 years ago and "cruised" Southern California and Catalina Island.....loved it! Want to hook up with someone with a Yanmar 2GM engine in their 29. Would love pics or to view the "engine bed modifications". Please correspond if you happen to be in the SF Bay Area or can send pics if far away. Thanx! Installed "hard" dodger, shortened mainsail and boom, trying to get ready for the Yanmar repower and installing roller furling "inside" the headstay. Any suggestions on removing the cutlass bearing? Tried with a puller and washer, but only succeeded in pulling the washer through the rubber (filed it down to fit through the bearing-coudn't get a good enough grip on inside edge of bearing).
