Re: Nor'sea 27 engine size

Hi
am posting my question as feel there is no need to add another new thread but to take advantage of Nor'sea 27 owners.
Looking at some in the market with different engine configuration,some have a 2 cylinder engine,some have one cylinder Yanmar (8hp)
I have the feeling small one cylinder is too small.
Any opinions and experience on what is a practical minimum?
To help my question,I will depend quite a bit on motoring (age 77) cannot afford adjusting sails as I used to.
thanks
David

Re: Nor'sea 27

David our Nor'sea is up for sale. She is an aft cabin, 1992, with a triple axle Pacific trailer and a Yanmar 2GM20F engine. She is in good to very good condition and well equipped.
She is located in East Tennessee.
I think you should consider a twin cylinder engine. Heard tell a single cylinder has vibration and might be under powered. I never had a problem powering in all sorts of conditions.
PM me for additional info.
Regards
Jerry

Truly a shame but I understand. Hard to let go of the dream.

I tend to say I saved my boat from the previous owner but it certainly wasn't THAT bad, no matter how much work I've had to do... and have yet to do on it.
Daniel @Rhapsody-NS27 would you mind PMing me. I don't have enough posts yet to PM you and I had a couple of questions about an aft cockpit Nor'Sea.
