Question on refurbished diesel engine - Alameda, CA
Relatively new to sailing. Bought a boat - a 1980 Catalina 30 - with two friends. The engine is totaled - a pump or hose broke and sprayed sea water all over it and it's corroded.
I'm trying to figure out a way to get a refurbished engine...
I'm thinking of buying a Catalina 30. One I'm looking at has a Universal 5411 inboard diesel.
I just heard that the Universal 5411 produces only 11hp and is sea water cooled. Can someone confirm if that is correct and also what issues that would raise.
The whole reason for me to spend...
