Hello. We just bought Yankee 38 hull number 21. We are redoing most everything at a yard in Seattle. The engine was changed to a Yanmar 3GM30 a while back. Any feed back from other YY38 owners or Yanmar 3GM30 owners would be appreciated. We hope to relaunch in May.

Thanks for the insights. We plan to restore the boat to a cruising configuration with the galley on the starboard and chart table on port.
The plan is to sail in the Pacific Northwest from Seattle and around the San Juan islands where the weather can develop.
The Yankee 38 should handle what ever comes.
One plus for me was the ability to go to weather and that hull and sail plan design does that well.
This will be an "Old School" restoration with analog instruments and staying with the tiller.
With roller furling it will be ok for a couple to cruise.
Racing is not in the plans as I have "done that and got the tee shirt".
Fast and strong is our motto.

Fair winds to you.
