Re: Repowering a Bahama 30

Depending on the year, it may have had the Volvo, but it also may have had the optional Yanmar 2GM(F). Sorry, don't have any experience with repowering, but I can tell you that the Yanmar is a very tight fit. Measure VERY carefully, and look at how you'll be able to access key pieces such as the dipstick, lift pump, filters, hoses, and bleeder screws. You don't want to have to be a Gumby, whose arms bend into an "S" shape to get to something!
