i have found a really nice 2000 C36 MKii for sale that had a problem uncovered by the survey. It has a Universal m35B engine with 455 hours that is likely original to the boat. The surveyor described it as moderate crank case blow by. Smoke from the breather tube was white in color and started appearing at about 2000 rpm and increased up to maximum revs. The breather tube is not oily, just the blow by and the white smoke. The engine started started up easily and made good power driving the boat close to 7 knots into a 30 knot headwind at full throttle. Judging by the condition of the boat and the low hours, I do not think this engine has been run very hard.
For or those that know this engine is this somewhat normal or an indication to run the other way?
I am am wanting to get into a C36 and I thought I had found a good boat, now I have doubts, help!
