Re: Yanmar 2GM20F Oil pan leaks

He he, I understand.

I've also met the complete range of DIYers and I sailed with my family to the Bahamas and Cuba and back and was able to take care of most of the maintenance I had to take care of. When it was too much for my knowledge, we hired professionals at times and I have no regret looking back (some fixed our haedstay, others aligned our engine).

I am surely interested in learning as much as possible but at the same time, I have no intention of becoming a professional at everything around the boat or if I do, I might change career.

But I sure won't stop sailing until "I know it all" and this is only one extra milestone in this learning process of mine.

Will I do it or not? I haven't made up my mind yet... But I sure appreciate the extra confidence gained with every new project I tackle.

Thanks for the tip ;-)

There is also a great deal of confidence to be gained in becoming independent. In owning boats there are many times when things break and the only one to fix it is you. It's part of the game.

Yanmars are quite easy to work on, I managed to replace a whole bunch on my 1GM10 with a set of wrenches/sockets, a shop manual and plenty of swearing.
