I love my Yanmar 2GM20F. Was a love/hate relationship 2 years back. Love when it ran, hate it when it got problem. Now its love all the way (touch wood).

Yanmar 2QM15. Easy to work on, getting on in yrs so uses a bit of oil. Wish I could make it run smoother but reliable old donk.

I love my Yanmar 30's. They can spin me within my boat's length. Feed my batteries electricity at times. Get me in, and out of tight spots, and sometimes difficult spotstoo! When there's no wind they can at times move me at 8 knots while using only 3/4 of a gallon divided between them. That's not bad for moving a 1000sq. ft. deck space floating home. I can only imagine the difficulties of moving Imagine with no motors......i2f

Repowered

When I bought my boat 12 years ago it had an old Volvo MD17C that was raw water cooled as, I believe, all the older Volvos are. It was cranky, noisy and leaked oil constantly. After putting up with it for a few years I took her into my boatyard, at the time, to get the leak fixed and came away with a rebuilt engine and a considerably lighter wallet but that's another story. The next summer the engine failed when one of the heads filled the cylinder with water (the joy of raw water cooling). After some fighting with the boat yard I repowered with a new Beta 37. I did the work myself. That was three years ago and since then I've put 800 hours on the engine. It is extremely quiet and smooth and sips 0.5 gallons per hour at my cruising speed of 6.5 knots. The Beta is a marinized Kubota so parts are available lots of places and are not marine prices but farm prices which is considerably less.

I LOVE MY BETA!

Dwayne, there's a guy in my YC who is tinkering all the time with his Volvo. it's a "one lunger" in a erricson 27. He seems to have it running great finally.
Kubota.. I've a Universal 5416 also kubota based but about 100lbs heavier! the new beta's are/would be my choice also.

I have 4,450 hours on my year 2000 Yanmar 4jh3e. Except for scheduled maintenance my only task has been to replace the oil sensor. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
