I post to a number of forums. Nearly identical posts. Saves some effort by directing to the blog I guess.

If my doing it this way offends you, I'm sorry.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

I huff'd and I puff'd but I whipped that ole' hunk of iron into submission!



Actually my little 2500 lb winch did most of the work getting it up the ramp without breaking a sweat!



It'll get serviced next week then I'll spruce it up a bit with some new paint and it'll be ready to go in the boat. Got a lot of stuff to do before that but hopefully week after next I can hoist it up and drop it on the engine beds.

Standby....

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

When I had my Ingrid 38, a yard manager was selling one out of his customers high end Tartan, he had just bought. The customer wanted new mast, new sails and a new engine. It was also really low hours. It was listed as a "deisel" rather than "diesel". I had accidentally transposed the i & e. I knew I did something incorrectly as I only received one hit on my daily search. I also bought it for $3K. Best engine I have ever had.
