One step closer!

We have crossed another huge milestone, and we now have a sweet westerbeke diesel for our yacht!

DSCN6972

She is a 4 cylinder 52HP Westerbeke diesel. As far as used engines go this is exactly what we were looking for. It’s definitely on the giant side for our boat, but thats what we wanted. That way we wont have to run her hard for normal operation, but we will have plenty of reserve power when we need it!

DSCN6969 We ran the motor for a good while before deciding to buy. It sounded great and didn’t smoke at all.

DSCN6973 I’ll probably clean her up and give her a fresh coat of paint as well as new hoses, belts,mounts, and fluids then she will be ready to drop in!
