New Yanmar saildrive installation

When I installed beta marine engines in my catamaran a long time ago I bought fiberglass engine mounts from Beta marine. I am now installing Yanmar 3ym30ae engines with SD25 saildrives but I have been unable to find the engine beds or any info about this.. Does Yanmar make these or do I have to fabricate them myself?

Thanks

Re: New Yanmar saildrive installation

Mack Boring, the Yanmar distributor on the East coast sells a "custom made" engine bed for most of the Yanmar saildrive product.

From what they imply, this is not a Yanmar product, but something they have made or out sourced, and it requires some drilling and tapping by the installer.

Re: New Yanmar saildrive installation

Yanmar used to make them. Were rather light weight and it's a bunch of work to change beds. Maybe better to modify existing.
