If the engine has worked so far, Id keep it, fix the immediate issues, and work on refit of the other parts of the boat. If longer term you move the boat out of Russia, then you might consider a repower mostly to have better access to parts and service. But even that might not be a big issue. And a repower I think will be a huge job, so I would keep it low on the priority list.

Welcome Aboard!!

I wouldn't replace the engine. Throw some love at it and put your effort and rupls into other projects. My first project would be to replace and enlarge the cabin.

I'm sure you have a million plans.

ASD are you saying Russia is the end of the world?
But since the world is round there is no end.

TheAtonicDog,
If you can make 11 knots w the original engine ... keep it.
How many cylinders and all that? Sitck-in-stone .. I like that.

Awhile back, we had a man from that area. He and his friend bought 2 steel tugs completed hulls and were going to finish them They were great looking boats. He disappeared quietly. Perhaps, they are busy finishing their projects.

Just be prepared for a major engine overhaul. Obviously for distance cruising you would carry spare starters, injectors, water pumps, etc but I think I would be tempted to stock up on pistons, valves, rings, mains, bearings, exhaust manifold, injection pumps, etc.

Probably cheaper and easier to build an inventory now rather than wait for a breakdown off some rural fishing village on the English coast.

The torque is likely more impressive than the horsepower. On a boat like this the torque matters.

The old make and break engines were simple but were heavy and swung big props at low rpm's.

That's a great boat! We don't have anything like that available in Australia.
Do you know the engine manufacturer? It could be a Belarus. Here in Australia we have tractors from Belarus and long ago a farmer originally from Ukraine told me that Belarus was originally supplying engine for trawlers in Russia. If so, they are very easy to work on and simple. I worked on few of them, mainly 4cyl 900 Tractors
Some history here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belarus_(tractor)

All the best, Franco

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the comments. Still waiting for a weather window to move it to the city. Then I will be able to provide more info.

Yup, thats the thing. Not quite in that state, though. After the advice you all have provided Im going to keep it and just see what she needs in-situ. Ready for a rebuild if necessary. I plan to start the refit in the engine room. From what I was reading in another thread I am now concerned about the diesel tanks O_O

Will update soon as I plan to move her Wednesday if the weather holds. Interesting trivia, the Russian authorities remove all floating aids to navigation in mid-October. This should be an exciting two day transit

Thanks again!

If you have a good depth sounder, you should be okay. A good hand held GPS will assist you too.

The USCG used to pull the floating nav aid from the Great Lakes either now or in the very near future. They would put the floating nav aids back in sometime in April.
