Repower C&C 34

Hey Sailors-

I am repowering my C&C 34.

The old Yanmar is at its leaping point- good for parts still running well!

Any suggestions?
We are considering a 09 Yanmar 28.9 horse.

Any thoughts on Props to put with?

thanks

I sail on 35 Mark I that does fine (7 knots )with a 13.5 Beta and while i can see going a bit bigger like the 3 cylinder 20 for smoother running I don't know that the boat really needs that big a motor ?

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Most people will think this to be far fetched,
but have you considered an electric propulsion system?

Hi Alex I am new to the forum, and am in the middle of repowering my Jeanneau 38'.I looked at Volvo,yanmar,and decieded on Kubota,34HP,4cyl.Iam in jersey,and I am dealing with a Co, in Conn, called sound marine. I decieded on Joe as he is a Mom and Pop type show, and he treats you like a person.This is a big job and I have a lot of questions and am impressed with his support,and willingness to explain things, and I have not spent a dime yet.I should be ordering in next 2 weeks. Sorry about the spiel......Red

We used Joe also he may seem mom and pop BUT sells a LOT of motors and is a substantial dealer

Hey Joe, I agree, what I think I was trying to covey was, dealing with Joe was pleasant, he lets you feel like you are his only customer. I find this is rare these days. Red

Thanks for the responses- we are on the West Coast - I have an old friend who is my shipwright- he is doing the install. The best thing is that he has the same boat and knows it well.
As for the motor power- we have an 18 now and are significantly under powered. In a sea we have a hard time making headway. And on a good day we travel 5 knots. A new Campbell Sailor may solve that issue but many have suggested the next size up.
As for Izuzu I have heard they are loud. We dont have a ton of space for insulation and soundproofing. They also shimmy a whole lot? from what I hear. Is this true? Do the bennifits out weigh the downsides?

I dont know what a Beta is - its probably a girl thing... I would love to get into electric power...but I am going to wait until the research is in and others have been the proto types With three kids on board power is important.

thanks for ideas
Alex

Hey, Alex, the west coast also has a large Beta Kubota Dealership, check out online,you will find it. These engines are made in UK, and are starting to build up a good rep around the sailing communities. I looked into both Yanmar, and volvo, both are overpriced parts are expensive. I know they have a big following and there are people that swear by them. I agree all are very good products or they would not be at the top of the heap. I chose the Kubota 35HP,I am changing everything from the seacock, to the exhaust,also am bringing it out the transom. Drive train from coupler to propeller, so I have my hands full. The support I am getting from Sound Marine Diesel in Conn is fantastic. Red

Marty, yes I have a 38' Gin Fizz sloop. I have kinda lurked around the Jeanneau site , saw Malcoms name , he seems to know alot about boats, Jeanneau in particular. I am at the point where I have cleared out my old engine, clean, clea clean, the bilge and engine area,what a mess...I reinsulated and installed VPL, on the walls. Its a 1/8" white vinyl panel with a rough finish, Installed a florescent light, what a difference.I am ordering the engine and all things related today.I am tking pics, when I figure out how to send I 'll put them up.Where do you sail, hail?
