Need Diesel for my 8.7

I am in need of a small diesel (original to this boat was a volvo 11 or 12 HP, repowered to Westerbeke 12Btwo before my ownership) doesn't have to be pretty, but functional and able to fit into my Columbia 8.7 (hull #233). A Westerbeke with the same footprint would be easiest, but whatever. She's a wonderful cruising sailboat. Solid, Stiff, and dependable. I will use my seagull outboard to get her out into the bay until I repower.

Any assistance with tracking down an affordable solution to this will be rewarded with numerous cold beverages anytime you're on the mid western shore of the chesapeke (Cadle Creek, off the Rhode/West River)

Thanks and fair winds

Steve,

I have a Yanmar 2GM20F - 18hp, 2 cyl in my 8.7. Works and fits well.

A4 replacement

Did your Yanmar replace an A4? Did it use the same engine bed?
