    1979 E30 2 Sunk during Isaias, worth saving?

    Dear Forum Members, Unfortunately our 1979 E30 2, located in Nyack, NY on the Hudson River broke away from her mooring and beached during Isaias. She is sunken, I don't yet know whether if there is hull damage and if so how big. She has a Yanmar 2GM20F in good shape that I just worked on and...

    Misadventures of a new diesel owner

    Hey, did you know these boats actually sail too? You wouldn’t know it watching me over my first 4 months of ownership, but we were finally able to take Segue (soon to be renamed) out for the day. I had a small scare when I went below to find the new exhaust riser smoking a bit when I was...

    YSM8 Oil Leak

    I have a YSM8 engine that appears to be leaking oil. It seems to leak only when running but I haven't completely ruled out a slow constant leak. The bottom of the engine sat in fresh (rain) water for an unknown but probably long period of time leading me to believe that one or more gaskets could...

    Ericson 27/ Yanmar 2gm prop size

    Hi, I'm looking to replace our exisiting 3 blade prop with a 2 blade. I think the 3 blade is too small as the boat barely powers at 4 3/4 knots. No tachometer on the boat though. Anyone have this boat and 2 cylinder diesel with a gear ratio of 2.62? Is hull speed about 5.5 knots? Thanks, David

    Yanmar YSB-8 RPM to speed

    I finally installed a Tiny-tach to get an idea of the RPM being turned by my YSB-8. It looks like around 2500rpm at 4.5kts on average on my E-27. I believe the max rpm on the YSB-8 is somewhere around 3200rpm. Does all this sound about right?

    E29 and Yanmar 8hp... underpowered??

    Hi folks, first post to this awesome forum. We've been boatless for 10 years, and it's high time for another. Our first boat was an E27, we cruised her lots on the BC coast including a 5-month lazy liveaboard sabbatical. We've had other nice boats since, including a lovely Alberg 37, but the...

    I am repowering C-ya in preparation for a long salmon troll season to be followed by a lap around the north Pacific. My Yanmar still runs great but the reduction gear is pretty tired and the raw water pump is seeping. Considering the heavy use I'll be putting C-ya to, I've decided to go brand...
