All of this info is correct and well and fine, if you are designing a boat. This boat is already equipped with what it has.
I think the OP may be asking, "Is this boat worth re-powering". If that is the question, a lot more information needs to be looked at. If the vessel is in good shape and priced well enough below value to pay for re-powering and that is your desire, then maybe yes.
If the vessel is priced with not much wiggle room and you have big plans for coastal cruising, then maybe no.
The fact is, the vessel is obviously manueverable and if you are going to use it on fair days with a good forecast
, it will be safe. Another thing that must be taken into consideration is the skill of the skipper
. As has been mentioned before, a lot of people sail boats with no engine at all.
Web Chiles was a freind of mine. It seems to me that "Resorgam" (his Sparkman-Stevens 36) had a very small engine. It didn't matter anyway, he wouldn't start it unless his life depended on it (maybe not even then). If he were to reply to this post it would be with a laugh.
Now that I think about it...........what happened to the OP......maybe the darn thing sank.....
