Re: Yanmar 3GM30F HP one-hour rating (??)
Those specs are close but mine is not a shallow draft. This is more like it: FREEDOM 36 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
, which doesn't actually specify the HP rating.
Sooo, maybe I am missing something obvious to everyone here but me, but why would the engine plaque say it's a 24 HP when the Yanmar Company and Freedom say it's a 27 HP? I can only assume that the one-hour max rating dictates its upper threshold. Are other Yanmars like this? Anyway, it's somewhat immaterial. I bought the boat. And now lots to learn!
