Yanmar SB8 Maintence
New sailboat owner. 78 Hunter 27, and she is great. Ton of fun, ton of worry. And I learn about new stuff to worry about every day.
One thing i have been worried about since buying her is the engine maintenance. Installed and running is a Yanmar SB8. Seems to be a good reliable engine, if a bit loud and not exactly powerful.
The lubricating oil looks pretty black. Should I change it? How do I change it? The fuel filter? Whats up with that thing? Can anyone recommend a mechanic in the Portland, OR area that could take a look at my boat, perform whatever maintenance that needs to be done and then give me the rundown of what to do and watch ongoing?
