Or a c-lcass or better yet D class catamaran. I have a picture of that going on in my copy of Twiname's book, Start to Win.Any sailboat with an inboard Diesel engine and either a feathering or folding prop.
If I wanted to waterski behind a sailboat I'd get an E-scow. ;-)
Looks like a sailboat for powerboaters in the powerboat for sailors thread.Swallow Yachts have been around for a while, they are doing some fantastic sailboats, too, that's where they started. The Coast 250 is essentially a motorsailor, but in fact one of the best sailboats I can think of, great looking as well, in my view.
Yes, as I was installing the whole new water pump, I did inspect the new impeller and shaft seals. They were fine. It pumped water fine. And overheated. The old one was actually OK when I removed it, but it was several years old.You have checked the impeller, right?At least, I hope the engine is still good. Only a couple hundred hours on it and it was overheating. I replaced the water pump and checked the thermostat and then handed it to a shop. They're dismantling the power head to see what's in the cooling passages. The answer should damn well be nothing. I'll probably learn what the answer actually is this week.
