I was in Montreal last month and called Pathfinder. John answered the phone
, confirmed Pathfinder is a going concern, selling engines. I do not recall
whether they sell parts
, but he said he is able to provide me a manual specific to my own Pathfinder if I provide the engine serial
A search of www.ic.gc.ca
, a Canadian government
registry of companies, lists 514-695-6676 as the phone
number, 514-695-1080 as the fax number, and email@example.com
as the e-mail address. John Scherer is listed as a manager.
Of interest, I found Pathfinder Marine
Inc. by following one guy's online rant about the company. Not having had any contact with either the boatowner or the company, my sympathies go to the company. For me, it proves the old saying that all publicity is good publicity-it was my fastest route
to finding Pathfinder.
I have no useful comments yet about the engine-I have become the volunteer mechanic
for an Islander 44 schooner and this is the original engine-still running despite a truly reckless and irresponsible owner (my friend) who has done next to no maintenance
on it for 20 years.
