Not much at the moment. Saw a boat this weekend but had soft decks that I don't wanna get into working on. Trying to see another one but can't get an answer to inquiry emails. Kinda stuck.

Going to the keys next week for a couple days and play tourist. Never been before, so there's that.

Re: Umm...well...uh-oh...

Saw a listing for a Tartan 30 with a Yanmar YSB8 engine. Isn't that 8hp? Is that small for this boat? It also has an 8hp outboard on the back. Not sure what the deal is with 2 motors. Is there a ballpark $$$ figure for re-powering something in the 30 ft range? Some boats that can be had cheap need motors but I get the feeling you'd end up spending more to get an engine in it.

Re: Umm...well...uh-oh...

Two years ago when I was looking at rebuild vs new a I recall a 30hp beta marine was around 5k + install/removal (another grand?).

I believe your correct that a YSB8 is an 8 hp unit, that is on the low side today. The first 30 footer (built late 70's) I sailed regularly was powered by a 9hp engine. It will move the boat. The fact that there is an outboard implies to me reliability problems with the engine.
