Deutz diesel 130 hp

What's to know about these engines ? I saw a Grand Banks Alaskan on YW with these engines .

Deutz has made a really wide variety of engines for many decades. I think most agree the quality is good. But it would help to know which models they were, to tell if they were appropriate to the boat.

Not in my area and the Internet is overflowing with parts sources. Deutz has been in business for decades.

I don't know any marin-ized versions, but it's hard to beat a Deutz for quality. I was traded a few 80-06 tractor engines back in the 80's and from what I recall, the tolerances were so close that the engines didn't even have head gaskets.

Thanks for all the info guys . I'm probably crazy for even thinking about a wood boat . It's on the same waterway that we are on and only a couple hrs by car from my house . Wood boat in the south is probably not a good idea .

I have Deutz engines in some heavy equipment. The 80-90 hp oil cooled engines are bullet proof.

NONE will be at the boat yard , but Deutz has great industrial and farm suppliers that should be 1/2 the pricing on "marine".

These are honestly rated engines , not pick up truck or taxi cab power.

That's correct, the head is aluminum and you put lapping compound on the top of the cylinder and lap each head to the top of the mating cylinder. They have been the high reliability engine for 70+ years but through a series of financial deals have gotten in bed with just about everyone. Stay away from Ruggerini engines, as an example.

That engine is a water cooled engine model, which as a traditional head and cylinder configuration, not the air cooled one.

No it ain't gonna happen . It was a long shot anyway . I was thinking ( dreaming ) if the guy was ready to downsize and get rid of the high maintenance I could trade him William plus some boot . We are only 3 days from each other on the Cumberland . Doesn't matter anyway after my wife got thru whopping on me I would be in no condition to work on the GB . Thanks guys for all the info .

The hobby with a wooden boat is maintaining a wooden boat.

The hobby with a plastic boat is either dockside cottage , or going cruising.

What hobby interests do you have?

I SEEM to enjoy the woodworking, varnishing and painting . Get bored sitting at the dock . I only have weekends , afternoons and a couple weeks off every year from work so haven't really had the time to cruise longer than a week or so . Might like it as a hobby but don't know yet . My boat has a lot more wood on it than it did 3 years ago so that must mean something. This Grand Banks would probably be to big of a step for us right now . But I like it and it's close to home .

Marty I looked,
That boat is a monster compared to William. That's the big issue.
And she's been in fresh water. Usually a wood boat in sea water has an OK to good hull but rot in the cabin and decks. This boat needs a very good survey for anybody to open their other eye to look at it.

If you want a bigger wood boat go look at a GB 32. And if you want a project working w wood cut off the stern and extend it. A GB 32 is much bigger than William but still tiny compared to the Alaskan. Listen to your wife. Forgettit. If you getit you'll never do anything but work on that boat. And unlike most on TF I like wood boats. I'd even consider a wood GB 32.

Eric I'm pretty sure I have more beam on William than a GB32 . The GB 32 will have more cabin space but a whole lot less covered deck space and no walk thru to engine space .

You're absolutely right Eric . I started this thread after a funky day a work . One of those days that you want to sale out and sail off . If your boat still puts a smile on your face as I think ours do then they are doing what they are supposed to do .
