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.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
