Improving Engine Power
 
In February we had a half-sinking of our Morgan 32 sailboat. We've spent the past few weeks working on the engine and finally moved her to a new slip this week. However, as we motored we noticed the power wasn't all that great. This particularly was noticeable when we went to dock in gusty winds at the new slip. Part of this could be she hasn't run and still working out the some residual engine issues, but I recall prior to this event we have always seemed a little underpowered. We have a Yanmar 3GMD (20 HP) engine and for the size and weight of this Morgan, is it enough? I feel as though we need more power...

Clean the prop and bottom, then retry.
