my email - jj_ramage at yahoo dot com.
am placing a 3 cylinder at least 20 HP motor. It will be horizontally mounted as low as possible with a CV system tying to the prop shaft.
Motor will be shifted forward 18 inches to better balance the load. I have very little gear / housing supplies aboard and she's always bow high. larger motor is a bit heavier and has lowered the stern resulting in drag as the reverse transom is slightly in the water, creating a swirl on the stern.
, and I WILL have access to the front behind the companionway ladder..
Batteries will be lowered as low as possible, and more available, not buried in the back closet.
Head will be a standing shower arrangement, and reconfigured layout.
cabin / house projects done, time to get sailing. Got the retirement summer home ready for retirement, now I need my sailing summer retirement boat done.
Kubota ? Yanmar ?
Both are based in the farm tractors / industrial power plants in the Japanese OEM's of Kubota and Yanmar.
Kubota Marinized motors= Beta, Phasor, Nissin, Universal.
Yanmar has a great worldwide parts availability, surpassing Kubota.
Kubota has more dealerships and parts availability in the USA than Kubota.
