The Yanmar is in good shape. It still runs like a little sewing maching, uses about 1/2 liter/hour. It could use some maintenance. Since I'm redoing everything, I was going to pull it and do a complete rebuild and upgrade the alternator.
If it's not broke, don't fix it, maintain it.

No, god no, don't. I was asking as I was just wondering if you had maybe gotten infected by either authors blather and bad advice regarding going motorless.

Forget I mentioned them, these aren't the droids you're looking for.

(Pick up a nice Hal Roth book if you are in the mood for some practical cruising reading/advice)

He seems to like it:
Re-powering Jean-du-Sud
Also presents an alternative method regarding placement.
As much as having one less potential leak in the hull around a prop shaft, I'm torn. Nothing like a burly diesel for when things get testy. Also keeps fuel issues down to just keeping it clean. Gas brings about additional fire hazards. It comes down to the individual. You can make it work either way.

Okay, I'll skip them. I was very intrigued watching the movie Deep Water, sad and tragic as it was.

About the only person I've followed in print on his blog and videos, though not yet bought his book, is The Simple Sailor (http://www.thesimplesailor.com). He's an older English boatwright who's junk rigged a Westerly Centaur, and sailed up into the Arctic Circle singlehanded.

I'm reregging my small boat very simply for singlehanding, and I approach his age, would like to make similar trips; modest, unique, achieveable, personally memoriable.
