Peter,

Thank you very much for the offer for the manuals. Just moments ago I downloaded the entire users manual that a new internet friend found... he just purchased a boat that has the same Samofa/Mitsubishi 4DQ50 motor so we have been looking together for this information. I do not yet know his source but I will look into this for anyone else who might be interested. Point of interest; the surveyor who I informally spoke with prior to buying this vessel described the motor as a 'throw away" due to the fact that after all of his years looking at yachts he had never seen one. It turns out the motor only has 1100 hours on it, all of the manuals are available in english, parts are available in the US, UK and Europe and it is quite a common power source for farm machinery and long boats (barges). I am glad I did not turn down the vessel on the 'experts' words. All boaters are not created equal.... some have to do more manual work than others to make their dreams come true and for that reason, have to listen to the words of others with a pinch of reality. This is an amazing boat... had l listened to those around me it would have been a missed opportunity.

Denise,
I read a sarcastic tone in your responses. I work as a career fireman - i just finished a 36 hour straight shift.... just because I am not able to monitor this site and post immediate answers does not mean the thread has fallen silent. Have patience please!

Sail on!

Jay

Yes.. you got me on that one.. it's just... you started this whole discussion with all this excitement. And for those like me that love boats and boat building/restoration and more.... Kinda left us hanging...
