Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)
Low RPM, and low piston speed is always an engine lifetime extender, all other things being equal.
Smaller, higher RPM engines just wear faster.
You want to load a diesel, but - and a BIG but - the little diesel's we put in our aux sailboats are not the same as the continuous duty heavy diesels of lore.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
