Re: Floated off the stands

I am so sorry to hear about your Aloa 34'. There are many low lying boat yards that were overcome by the storm surge where boats got knocked over so you are by no means in this alone.
I know that you worked hard to get the old Farymann diesel sorted out by having a new exhaust manifold fabricated. The problem with Farymann engines is getting replacement parts as you found out. When you look for your next boat I'd urge you to avoid boats with Farymann engines in them. I'd avoid Volvos too; while there are parts available they are very expensive.
My boat was "totaled" by insurance once but I could not live with the idea that I'd killed my boat, so I bought it back from them and took the remaining insurance money and fixed her up again.
