Engine install complete

The new engine is really smooth and after warming her up I powered up and could easily see the extra power manifested in the prop wash. Can't wait to get our for a sea trial. Based on the fact that I can get 3800 RPM here at the dock it is clear we will need to replace the propeller with more diameter if possible and more pitch to harness the extra horsepower at the top end.
New Yanmar 3YM30 engine warming up for the first time. Engine hours reading 0.0 on July 1, 2010.
