In with the new

We are repowering with brand-new Yanmar 4JH4-HTE 110HP turbo diesels. Here they are lowering one into the port engine room.

The engine barely fits through the deck hatch. Our mast should be back soon.

There is still a lot of work: getting the engine into place, hooking up the driveshaft, installing the exhaust and fuel hoses, water hoses, alternators, etc.

I found Tara in her own little compartment, installing a dual-tank propane system with easy switchover and see-through lightweight fiberglass tanks.

Running out of propane in the middle of preparing a meal is no longer a major hassle!
