JouvertSpirit said:I just finished replacing a 1974 Farymann with a Yanmar 3YM20. There was some additional fabrication needed to make the engine mounts line up (the newer engines are smaller for the same HP), but it was a small amount of the total job.
What caught me off guard $ wise was the lay-up time in the yard; we had 2 weeks of constant rainy weather right after dry docking. Don't forget to add the yard time into your costs.
That's not a problem.."The dealer and installer" rides his bike to my slip a minute and a half away..."Sought of right in my lap"...Not leaving for another month in a half..so I'm in ideal position for installation and sea trials. Should be able to do it right in my slip....Good point though
