Don't have pictures as it is in a building on the hard at the moment, very definitely a 32 though!

there are a few variations on the p-32,mine does have teak toe rails and a forward wheell also a tapered mast . my yanmar was put in before i bought her,however it looks as though the engine was a good fit to the bed,also 13 sails came with her..yes she does go to phrf rating and i sometimes move by larger boats with lower ratings..sandy i thought you had all the liteterature on the p-32...great boat...the rudder lower unit attachment point was a weak point on mine and i ended up replacing major bolt with a larger one.i would be hugely interested in any close up pics of you alls lower rudder side bottom and aft shots... acouple of weeks ago this slighly smaller sloop could not get away from me with all his rags up,i had only a 130 jib up . this happens quite often.the only boats that walk away r j boats also sabre32s run side by side with me

Mark, I've spent plenty of time on a P32 and loved the boat. But I'd swear it was way more than an 11hp engine.

Are you saying "for sure" the ORIGINAL engine on that boat as 11hp? Or more likely, some cheapass PO installed an 11hp replacement engine, and that's what's out for a rebuild now?

If it is an Atomic4, IIRC that might be called 11hp when the constrictor plate was installed, but that's also rated 30hp at higher rpm without the plate. (The plate was installed in some engines to bring them under a tariff point on hp, makes a good paperweight unless you're shipping one across borders.)

I'd say leave it out if it is really an 11hp engine. 11hp is just the wrong engine to waste money on. Good for docking but a cruel joke for trying to make safe harbor in a storm.

Wood core decking may have some hidden issues. Be careful to check this all out. Repairable but lots of work!
