Need advice: Buy a boat for its engine?
Dear Wise Sailnet Forum Peeps;
So my engine is slowly falling apart, it runs, but last year I had to fix it at least 10 times. I tell my friends I am getting an education in diesel mechanics. I found this boat that has a Yanmar in very good shape (owner says it only has 6 hours on it). It's a Yanmar 18 and the owner wants about 2K for the whole boat (Dad dies, kid does not know how to sail). The problem is I only want the engine. The boat is nothing special, fiberglass, ugly, not in great shape. Has all the electronics.
So my question is, how can I pull this off?
