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 ;-)

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.
