Re: Westerbeke 4-107 repair or replace?

Thanks, all.

The current plan is to have the yard yank it tomorrow. A friend is going to trailer it to a mechanic near him, who'll take a look. He is leaning toward keeping it Westerbeke, if...

Re: Westerbeke 4-107 repair or replace?

Thanks for the prompt response! I think the yard quoted $400-$600 to pull the engine. I'm guessing getting it back in would be about the same. (Of course, you're right: getting a different engine...

Westerbeke 4-107 repair or replace?

I have a friend who's recently bought a '73 Dickerson 36 with it's original Westerbeke 4-107 showing an unrealistic 190 hours on the clock. The boat was a very good buy, despite the fact that the...

What looks like a patch to rear of the keel is actually part of how the keel is assembled. It's not a repair.

We are going to put in a pretty low offer on the Tartan, thinking the Pearson could be...

Paul,

I suspect that, were the two boats in similar condition, we'd lean toward the Pearson, too. Seems to have more character (which, of course, means more sanding and varnishing) and just feels...

Here are links to the pictures I took of the two boats. I hope navigating the pages isn't too big a headache.

Folks,

I'm back from the trip to see the T33 and the P323. I may post a separate note about this in a new thread, but thought I should put an update here, first.

The T33 appears to be in...

Thanks, Sailing Dog, and all, for the great advice. I do intend to get the moisture meter, but won't have it in time for this weekend's trip to see the second T33 and the first 323. There do seem to...

I want to reply to what Mike has posted, point by point. I hope this makes sense. I'll try to bold face his original text.

*I like the extra weight (12,800 displacement). It doesn't bob around...

There is a CD33 not too far away that I am interested in seeing. Those boats definitely have their appeal. The CD33 has a PHRF of 186, the 383, 180, and the T33, 156. I forget the area these figures...

Thanks. I had read that article a couple of times. I also have the Practical Sailor's "Practical Boat Buying" volumes, and have about memorized those. They have the T33 in there, but unfortunately...

I've walked the decks, bouncing up and down a bit, and it seems all the boats (maybe ten) I've been on felt pretty solid, so maybe I'm not doing it right (I ain't all that light). The T33 that I've...

Tartan 33 or Pearson 323?

My wife and I live near the southern end of the Chesapeake and are looking at a first boat to enjoy during what we hope will be our upcoming not-quite-golden years. We are novices, but have a good...
