Re: wifi reception

Get a Groove 52Hpn or a Bullet M2hp. It is small investment, but you'll get the marina wifi with no problems. You will also be able to get it from miles away.

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 Rebuild

It was pretty easy removing both cylinder liners. You can buy or easily make cylinder liner extractor. I made mine from a threaded rod and scrap Aluminum.
