Thanks everyone for the advice.
I'm really hoping once i tear into it, ill wont see a cluster **** of rust on the interior
, however i probably will. The boats about 25 miles from me, with traffic can be upwards of an hour drive. This weekend ill be practically staying up there to really dig in to the engine and boat to create a list of problems.
That being said, i'll update the thread with photos of the boat AND the engine. I've heard a majority of these perkins engines are built like tanks
and a plethora of parts
out there, jsut a matter of finding them.
On a side note, the boat is in decent condition, only the rigging/chainplates, seacocks and engine are in need of servicing/replacing.
here is a few photos for everyones boat porn(taken by owner)
