I feel so much better about EVERYTHING now

https://www.yachtworld.com/yacht/198...yacht-7281722/

And here I thought...
  • That I was OCD
  • That I was crazy for investing so much in an old 34' MT
  • That I was WAAAY upside down on my fine vessel

Well surpise, surprise, surprise I only have a mild case of all these ills.

Would have been even more impressed to see a complete engine overhaul too.

The first thing I looked for was "what did he repower with?"

An engine repower or steel tanks seem irrelevant - my suspicion is that it has never been used - kept in a shed as a hobby- I couldn`t imagine using it - coming on board after a swim - scared to drip or sit on anything............operating theatre level clean up after cooking........let alone crawling out of the engine room with greasy hands.
NO THANKS

You've got a good engine, the rest of the equipment can be updated as necessary.
I still do not like exteriors teak.
Have fun.

Just bought a freshwater boat not far from this one. The fresh water boats age well, but the price on this one??? The only thing crazier may be the people who line up to buy it!

Nice job.
Kind of like a beautifully restored classic car.
A great hobby for a restoration guy and fun for shows, but tough to maintain if actually used regularly.

I don’t know what they put on the teak decks but its not going to last in the real world. It will be near impossible to maintain.

That does NOT look like a 40 year old boat!!! That's impressive !!

With only 800 hours on the Lehman it probably didn't need a repower. The electronics might need a little freshening up but that is a very fine looking vessel!

My Dere had over 9000 hours and still running strong. When the Lehman has 5000+ hours, start saving up for a rebuild in a couple 1000 more hours.

Amazing! Yeah, put my kids and my dogs on it for a week and it'll be worth $30,000 again.

That just isnít the fact about Lehmans. They can easily run to the 10K to 15 K hours.

The 800 hour Lehman is certainly still good. But for that asking price and level of care put into the boat, I was expecting to see something a bit less agricultural transplanted in there.

I was being conservative. Any naturally aspirated diesel can
run MANY hours with proper maintenance

Realistically, just about any engine that gets good maintenance and isn't pushed harder than the design is happy with will last a lot longer than most people make them last. Most people either just don't use it enough and never pile on that many hours, or they abuse it to an early death, or maintenance isn't up to par and an easily preventable failure trashes a perfectly good engine.

LOL Al, we all know, the boat could be perfect, tanks full of fuel, water tank full, sanitary tank empty, engine(s) purr like a happy kitten but, it is just not your boat until you make your desired changes.
