I've seen an Atomic 4 or 2 for pretty cheap, but if you are going through the expense of having that installed, might as well get a used diesel while you are at it. The more you do yourself, the more you'll save, paying $60/hr+ for someone to run a few tubes and install a tank isn't worth it if you can manage it yourself (OTOH it is for things like alignment).
He said it is in a yard in Connecticut, I doubt you will find anyone to clean the boat for $60 a hour! I am sure you will be looking at twice or three times that rate in New England.

There are plenty of boats you can put an outboard on, I don't think this is one, especially not for a trip down the inter-coastal. I say ship it or have it fixed before you leave with an inboard.

Wow, that bad huh? I had no idea. We paid a guy $20/hr to fill, fair, and paint our decks along with doing our bottom. That's the cheapest boat labor I've seen, but I figured closer to $40 was average for that type of thing and $60 or so for more mechanical stuff.

Either way, point still stands. Do as much as you can yourself. It took me 2 hours to get our diesel tank out, at $60/hr that's $120 that you could save. If you add that up with things like running pipe, installing thru hulls, engine compartment cleaning, etc, you could probably cut costs pretty significantly.

Re: Outboard on 1974 Pearson 10m?

I rather like Yves Gelinas' approach to adding an outboard for those times when he needed it:
Re-powering Jean-du-Sud
Seems like a temporary version of this would be fairly simple to devise.

we all know you can find a cheap boat but you are not going to get a boat for cheap.
so now he has a cheap boat that he can't use until he spends more then he could have bought a usable boat for.

Yes I have been looking at a Pearson 10M with newish diesel for less than the cost of a re-power. It needs a lot of other work though for my use.

That is the problem in this day and age of $6-7000 30+ foot boats, just one big issue and the repairs are more than the boat is worth.

By the way have you even seen the boat yet? The engine may be the least of your worries! By the way I like the hull color.

there are several on Yacht world you could get for under 15k one has a newer Yanmar. a repower in that boat is about 10 to 15k

Re: Outboard on 1974 Pearson 10m?

Yes, this is probably only feasible as a DIY job near the boat's current location. You might get lucky and find a nearby free or nearly free boat wrecked in Sandy that still has a workable engine. Remove the engine for the Pearson 10M, take a chainsaw to the free boat and sell the parts on eBay, trailer the engine to your Pearson 10M, and install it yourself.

Alternatively, you could fabricate a new mast step from fiberglass-covered wood to replace the corroded step in the Pearson 10M to make the boat sailable, and sail the boat to its new location with coastal hops, assuming good weather windows and an otherwise seaworthy vessel.

Either way, you will be spending some time in CT...

Re: Outboard on 1974 Pearson 10m?

Thanks, all for the help! I've thinking many ofthe same things myself; just looking for some "experienced" second opinions. Found a used Atomic 4 on ebay, but like I said in the post, I have little money right now. Wife left after 22 years, got 2 kids to feed, job ending in July, busy getting web design business off the ground, blah blah. For me and the kids, it's a dream come true and I couldn't pass her up...I won her on Ebay auction for $571.00!! the sails and lead ballast alone are worth much more. Shippers want $3000 from CT to Fl...I may just pay for season storage till I get funds, or the tax return.
