Re: Quick! Talk me out of Purchasing a Sabre 30!

There's no such thing as too much horsepower - just ask any hot rodder.

Seriously though, as long as the bigger engine doesn't rob valuable space, it should only affect your fuel consumption a bit and on a sailboat that ain't exactly a major factor.

Keep in mind that big alternators can place a MAJOR drag on a small engine.
