Hi, my CS36T has a Westerbeke 30 and is next to quiet, just have to have the sound proofing updated, easily done and much better than the original mess if it still in there, or perhaps was removed and never replaced.
V-drive as well, awesome sailboat in all sorts of weather

I recently looked at a 36T and loved the boat, except the engine box configuration does not seem to accomodate even a moderate level of acoustic control. It was loud! How have 36T owners addressed this, or is just easier to ignore it?

flysci I have a 36T with the (original?) Westerbeke 30HP vee drive. And yes it is possible to get excellent access to most parts of the engine, but it's a painful exercise in emptying everything out of the lazarettes, then putting it all back. A bit much to do for just a quick check on something. I don't know about others, but my lazarettes are full - I live aboard. But it's the only boat I've owned, and I love it for many reasons, including the interior, and it's sailing characteristics.

jimrafford We sold our 1979 36t, hull #3 last summer and purchased a cs40. We bought the 36 from the original owner in the late 90's. I had helped him for many years prior taking care of the boat and sailing. He was in his 80's.
We loved the boat, spent extended time vacationing and living aboard in the summer. I would trust the boat in any conditions. We had a tall rig and deep keel and we regurally walked away from almost any other comprable boat.
The companyonway ladder is steep but you'll get used to it.
As far as engine access goes when the steps are out and the side pannels are removed you can get at everything. My only complaints were getting to the raw water pump was a pain if you had to do it quick and the vdrive makes access to the stuffing box difficult.
One thing I noticed and liked right away on the 40 is the head is on the port side and you don't have to go around the table to get to it. I never looked at a 36 merlin but the layout looks like the 40. If the head is on the port side life in the cabin will be easier if your stuck below on a rainy day w/ guests.

That is very handy, the way you can pull the shaft. Are we looking at the inboard end of the shaft at the bottom of your third photo?

How is it getting to the stuffing box?

I take it that is a V-drive? Or?
