When we bought our boat last year, it had a brand-new 3YM30 mounted on PYI mounts. One of the mounts had failed. The engine had 4 hours on it, and I believe it had never left the dock, so vibration was not the cause. As for time - the boat had been sitting for less than a year.

The problem is, Yanmar mounts are very tall. If you have a clearance problem, it's awfully tempting to use aftermarket mounts instead of rebuilding the beds.

Is it possible that Poly Flex or some other company might use more sophisticated materials to get the same results (the perfect blend of soft and stiff) that Yanmar mounts get with height?

This mount design will keep the motor where it belongs when the sh!t hits the fan.

Anything else is ---

Does that mean your last post on this subject, or you want the rest of us to cease and desist, too? I'd say the topic of engine mounts is always open to discussion, at least until I figure out why mine failed without actually being used.

Naw

Just my last post on a better motor mount.

What failed on your motor mount and do you have it?

It could be that it is the the first one tightened and then the motor was twisted or moved fore and aft or side to side. This would induce a tearing motion even with out the motor running. If you still have it, try putting the pieces together (the rubber will kinna interlock) to see what it looked like before it failed, it will give you a clue.

I know this is your last post but..

With the hundreds of thousands of sailing posts on the many sailing forums you'd think you'd hear of this problem, where the motor breaks free and flails around. I can't recall reading about an engine falling out of its mounts? Can you point us to some discussion on this inherent problem?

I have been in four separate knockdown incidents, in rough conditions, in my life (this is not counting spinnaker broaches while racing). In not a single one of them did the motor tear free or even break a mount. In one storm we were knocked flat three times, and to the spreader too many times to count, and other than cabinet latches failing and pots, pans and other assorted things breaking free the motor stayed put.
