Need a favor! Yanmar 2gm20f pic

Help,

I need a picture of a Yanmar 2gm20f dipstick next to a ruler or tape measure.

It seems that the rubber stopper on the dipstick has slipped and I have no way of knowing where it's supposed to sit, thus no way of knowing if my oil is full or not.

I was hoping to sail the next couple of days and don't want to waste a day trying to track down a new one. Rather do that on a work day

Thanks

Rob, I'll be at my boat tomorrow (Friday). I'll be happy to measure the distance from the tip to the rubber stopper, if it's not too late for you. That would be easier than doing a picture.

Re: Need a favor! Yanmar 2gm20f pic

Sorry--got the measurement and almost forgot to post! The dipstick on my 2GM20F measures 5.44 inches (138mm) from the tip to where the rubber would stop at the engine. So essentially, 5.44 inches of it goes into the block and crankcase.
