7.3 Information

I am looking for information on the 7.3 S2. I have found one in my state that I am interested in. I posted a similar question in the Boat Purchase & Review forum but I am hoping for some detailed information here. It has an OMC SailDrive. Is that a problem? The boat is a 1982 model year and has seen only fresh water. I am having dificulty finding any info on the net in regards to interior space or even an owners manual. How big is the v-berth? I would like to get some questions asnwered here before I contact the owner as it is about a 3 hour drive to go look at the boat. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link but I had that one already as it is just the brochure. Thanks though.

Hard to say...try the Saildrive Owners group

Quote<< It has an OMC SailDrive. Is that a problem?>>

Hard to say...but one of these 524 members could probably give you a pretty good answer. Some VERY knowledgeable folks over there on this topic.

saildriveowners : Saildrive Owners Group

Sorry about the multiple references to these other groups, but it likely the most efficient way for you to get the answers you need.

i am very satisfied with my 7.3.... it has Saildrive... runs like a champ... keeping the cooling water intake free and flowing is the most frustrating part of the engine... it really moves the boat well though - doesn't come out of the water in waves like the outboards do.. the furler needs to go - i am looking to go to a hanked on jib system in lieu of the sagging furling system. i have not found a way to tension the forestay because the furler covers the wire. IOR boat... you'll experience weather helm when the wind blows - reef the main first to restore balance. i sleep aboard at anchor on regular basis, very comfortable. trailers fairly well.
