I would read your policy very carefully. Lloyds at least in home owners insurance is a last resort insurer. I hate handling their claims. Very slow and don't like to pay. Maybe the marine division is...

It depends on who you are talking to. If you have just met a lovely young lady you explain that you own a yacht. If you are meeting with the tax auditor it is just an old boat.

The problem is that the heat exchanger is part of the exhaust manifold, they are one unit. Otherwise I would do just what you said and get a generic heat exchanger. Bad design.

That is what I will have to try. We have a Wellcraft 2900 Express Cruiser and I do that with it but it is difficult as the side decks are narrow. It may be easier with this one.

Thanks everyone.

The big thing to me with the prop pockets is the minimal draft. The Keys are very shallow. Going from a 4' draft to 2' 7" will be very nice. Now if I can figure out how to get...
