How Much Power?


James M. Cleary
There has been a bit of discussion about repowering the Morgans and what is the right size engine to get. While digging through old boat papers I"ve come across an article written by Ted Brewer and published in Good Old Boat in July of 2004. I scanned the article and am posting it here. There are 4 pages. Let me know if they come through in a readable state. I'm sure I read the article back then but I don't think I want to get into it again. This article is most likely the reason why I have been so diligent in my care of the Yanmar. I have no desire to replace the beast.
