Well we are Catalina 36 owners-still waiting form the satisfaction of ship's mortgage for the sellers loan and then we document with the USCG.
The original Universal 25 XP had a bad cylinder and the water pump was leaking into the engine block. When we removed this engine we also discovered that there was a significant hole in the exhaust elbow which could not be found by the surveyor; the prior owners was pumping CO2 into the aft stateroom and did not know it
We are re-powering with a new Beta Marine 25 HP diesel-we are waiting for the engine to be shipped from England
