Thatís why I have a 220,000 miles 1998 BMW M3 and a 1999 F350 with a 5.9 12 valve Cummins. Itís just the way Iím wired.

That being said, just because I want to feel that attachment doesnít mean Iím going to sell everything I own just to be able to put a down payment on a Porsche 911 GT3. I can still be smart about it. Because part of the fun and excitement for me is knowing I got something that I really enjoy for a reasonable price. If I over paid, it kinda sucks the wind out of my sails, so to speak.
Absolutely agreewith you!

Offer accepted! We’re moving forward to the next step which is to have a mechanic get the boat ready for sea trial. They are going to tell me what the list of things that are being replaced. This is all at the owners expense.

The captain and mechanic and broker are going to sea trial the boat as a shake down before I make the trip down there and sea trial.

We’ll see!

Still working on it. Apparently nothing happens quickly in the keys. They did sea trial it and the engines didnít make rated power and smoked. So the injectors are currently out being rebuilt. The fuel is going to be polished and the tanks opened up and cleaned from the inside. The broker is hoping to be able do a 2nd run next week. If all goes well, then Iíll fly down for an official sea trial. So far the buyers have been willing to make the repairs that need to be done, so I canít complain.

And honestly it works in our favor. We need to sell our Mainship first, which is currently under contract. They sea trial it next week and if all goes well, the sale will be official soon after.

Have a friend that had an MT 47 like that, with 185 Lehman turbos - he and his family loved it and used it for many years with no problems. Hope it works out for you and your family!

Do the 185ís not have intercoolers? I swear they said they needed to pressure test the ďaftercoolersĒ

No, they donít. That is the difference between the 225 and the 185. Brian said if my intercoolers go bad what I would have to do is bypass them and then I would have 180/5s. The intercoolers are not available anymore.

Define "did not make rated power"???

If I am to assume you meand did not make RPM y'all are likely chasing the wrong rabbit. That is a prop issue....not all that other crap you mentioned.

However, having injectors rebuilt is a nice thing to have.

I agree, let them throw stuff at the wall hoping to fix the problem. It is all good things to have the PO pay for. Eventually they will stumble across the real problem and fix it. In the mean time the buyer should hope they fix a lot of the wrong issues.

"Eventually they will stumble across the real problem and fix it."


If the boat is fitted with cruising props why would the new owner wish to disturb it?


Better fuel consumption, lower engine wear and quieter aboard is a plus not a minus.

Props isn’t the only thing that can cause smoke and low WOT RPM. I don’t think it’s injectors, but it isn’t my boat or my call. So let them get them rebuilt. But, my feeling is it’s the turbos not making boost. That’ll definitely cause those symptoms.

Yes it will. And the bottom and props being significantly fouled could casue it as well. I just don't think both turbos would fail at the same time...
