Aaahhhh - wrap some duct tape around it if it lets go.

It always works for Red Green.

I do like duct tape, But only to stop leaks and to hold tarps together...

You should watch Red Green - there are an unlimited number of uses for it.

The prop on a boat does not push the boat. The prop pushes the engine and the engine pushes the boat. The connection of the engine to the boat is thus significantly important. The top mount looks like a captive mount and the black ones look like the one half would easily part company with the other if the rubber failed.

I would thus go with the top ones. YMMV
Absolutely true. What I've done is to wrap the mounts with Dyneema. It can be done with rigging wire as well. I would not chance using cheap mounts not specifically designed for a Yanmar although the price of new Yanmar mounts is quite outrageous.

The price of anything Yanmar is outrageous - like $350 for a rev counter. Mine stopped working 6 years ago - I still can't stomach the cost of replacement.

Be thankful you don't have a Volvo.

Re: Engine swap will it work?

As it turns out I cant use the newer mounts, anyway. They are 5 1/2 " taller than the ones in the boat. It will not adjust out. that means I use my old ones. I Don't really know how to check them for being bad. They look o.k?
How do you test them?

I'm no expert on mounts but if they were mine I'd clean them thoroughly and examine them closely to see if there was any serious corrosion/cracking etc. in the metal. Next I'd check the "rubber" to ensure it was still bonded to the metal and hadn't been oil soaked or perished from heat etc.

If they looked good after all that, I'd ensure they were retained in some way - not totally dependent on the rubber/metal bond. If not I'd cobble up something to keep them together in the case of separation - S/S safety wire or something.

They don't actually fail all that often in my experience. I've seen a lot more boat engine mounts pull off the beds due to improper or inadequate installation than actually fail themselves.
