Engine and Drive Train / new motor
« on: June 20, 2024, 11:30:58 AM »
I am looking at a Bata 25 to put in the 323.  I have found a place in Indonesia.  Its name is   (Marine Power Engine).  He is selling the new motor for $3,200.00 shipping $435.00.  That is close to 7,000.00 less than the places in america.  Is this a scam or has any one purchased from this company?

Looking for a 3 blade prop for my Pearson 323.  It has an 1 1/8" shaft and Volvo MD11 diesel I am not sure of the size or pitch it should be.  I believe it should be left hand.  Used good shape or new.

« on: August 16, 2018, 06:26:43 PM »
I was looking and thinking about a Pearson 40 with a flush deck.  What are your thoughts about this vessel.  At the price I have seen I might just be dreaming.  It look's fast just sitting at the dock.

Standing & Running Rigging and Fitting/Tuning / Boom Vang
« on: May 01, 2018, 09:55:00 PM »
Just got a killer deal on a Boom Vang.  Want to know what type of attachment points should I get?  Like the boom should I just get a one bolt boom bail and what size?  Also the mast, should I get something that will move to both sides or a mast hound.  It is a soft Vang.  Don't want to spend a lot but would like something descent, is that possible?   I will be installing this myself.  Thank You for the input.   Dick
