Hello members. I am new to this site and found it on google
while looking for information on Columbia
sailboats. I have an 8.3, 1977 Columbia
which I have spent a lot of time and money
on restoring as it was in pretty rough shape when I got it. Really enjoy sailing her but one thing that has always bothered me is the Atomic4 gas engine
. I really don't like gas on a boat, just my pet peeve, so this fall I removed the A4. I have a yanmar 2QM15
which I've had rebuilt and I plan on installing it in place of the A4. Has anyone done this conversion on an Alan Payne columbia sailboat. Sure would like to talk to you. Any help most appreciated.
