Diesel life

Thanks Comeraderie. This is very helpfull, it has 1600 hours on it, so I guess I should have little worry for some time. Thanks so much. Maurice

Welcome, Match! Nice to see another BC'er on the board.

Your W 28 is a decent coastal cruiser that should give you many enjoyable years in our cruising paradise (the last few weeks excepted)...

Welcome, Match61! I have a friend with that same motor, and she has had no real trouble with it. Naturally, she maintains it well, and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty.
