Smile Hello All, New Member from Ohio

Hello All,
Thanks for letting me/us join.
The Wife and I have been land lubbers for many years and
are ready to make the jump.
I have owned boats ...Star Craft 15 Ski boat many moons ago...then up to
a 30 foot cruisers with nowhere to cruise her in Central Ohio.
We have been searching trawlers and have pretty much zeroed in on
the Mainship 35 or 39. Single Diesel would be my choice.
I have been a full service backyard mechanic for many many years
with just enough diesel experience to be dangerous having owned
about 5 Mercedes and now a Chevrolet Italian chevy cruze. Love the mileage.
I cannot fathom the 3 to 13 gallons per hour with the mainships so I am pondering an engine swap with maybe a 77 hp Perkins 302.2 cu in (MF a4.300 is available up here maybe)
Anyway thanks for letting me join .
Gary
