i just bought a 45' Whitby in florida yesterday.

I am not familiar with the Westerbeke 55B engine. Is there anything I need to know about it before my trip home with new boat via cancun to Port O'Connor TX. In the immortal words of Captain Ron. "If it's going to happen, it's going to happen out there."

Via Cancun just because?? or??? .. and you do know Captain Ron was just a movie, right??

Looks like an amibitious undertaking on a boat totally new to you.. best of luck. Those are very pretty boats... Classic C&C

Re: i just bought a 45' Whitby in florida yesterday.

I had the boat inspected & chartered her a month ago. I have only had Yanmar engines before with good luck. I had never ran into a westerbeke before. On on site I found it was really made by isuzu.
