Re: engine hours

I started this thread in order to make sure I took the right steps in order to buy a boat with a decent engine. I think the engine is one of the most important mechanical parts of the boat.

Re: engine hours

This is all good news.
I would think that getting your oil tested once in a while could only be a good thing.
I don't need the service yet, but I'm going to start looking into it.
Thanks again.

Re: engine hours

Agree on the mechanic.
Who does oil analysis? My own analysis would only involve smell and check for metal bits that settle out.

Re: engine hours

Thanks everybody for the input.
I asked the question because the majority of the boats I look at have under 1k hours. I'll be a little more comfortable with higher hours engines.
People don't seem...

Re: engine hours

TQA. So I wonder how much info a mechanic could give on the condition of the engine.
Thanks for the edit.

engine hours

In my search for my next boat, I've come across a couple of boats that I really like but they had a lot of hours on the engine, from 4 to 6 thousand.

Both about 40 ft, early 90s sloops, one yanmar...

Re: direct drive

So v-drives are similar to a transfer case in a 4wheel drive truck? I wouldn't think that's efficient for long periods or high rpm.
Thanks again.

Jim.

Re: A survey is not poetry

Was it easy to find somebody with experience with your particular boat and how did you go about looking?

Re: Full Keel

Racing boats with their fin keel designs are choosing slower speeds? That doesn't sound right to me.

Re: loose footed main

Thanks faster. I was starting to go soft on in-mast furling.

So, are loose footed mains a pain to reef? More stuff floppping around? And do they work ok with lazy jacks and all?

Re: loose footed main

Thanks for all the posts. A lot of good information. Part of my dislike for in-mast furling comes from the loose foot. It always seemed to me that it would mess with sail shape.
Well, lots to think...

Re: New WA state insurance law??

Hi Faster,

I looked on, boat.wa.gov, but I didn't see anything about higher liability insurance.
Maybe a closer look on the site or it's too new to show up in the regs?

Re: Full Keel

Hi Bob.

What a nice looking boat. If it's not too late, I'd like to get on the wanna-be crew list for the first sail. Hope you get good wind.

Good luck, Jim.
