Anyone have one? The Family Cruiser in particular. I've seen them powered by Izuzu, Westy, Nissan and repowered with Yanmar. All sound good, any one better than another? Leaning towards the Yanmar because it's newer. Anything in particular I should look out for in this model besides the usual issues? Thanks for any feedback!

This was ours. 80hp Ford Lehman re-power in ours. The hull to deck joint needs to be redone in all of them. Not too big of a deal. Pop rivets and 5200 then a new rub rail from Hamilton Marine or a supplier of your choosing. Just sold a family cruiser for a client in Long Island. Buyer is a happy camper.
