MS 400 Yanmar Mounts and Mag Anodes
I am getting the survey done on Friday for my (hopefully) new 2008 MS 400. The single Yanmar 380HP has about 1200 hours.
The Yanmar 6LY3-UTP manual indicates flexible engine mounts are to be replaced every 1000 hours or every four years. Is this really necessary?
Also, the boat has been looping and has zinc anodes since it was a salty. It has been in freshwater since last summer. I will keep it in freshwater. I am paying for a haul out for the survey, but I don't think I can get them to change to magnesium anodes on the same day. Could I wait until the fall haul out to switch to magnesium anodes?
