Dave you might want to look at what Bacon has here in Annapolis before you spend
a lot on a stay sail... we did Bacon's for our Maramu with great success.
Happy Thanksgiving.

That Altmount is a pretty slick setup. We have a 210A alternator that has a
custom fabricated mount but I like the looks of your system a lot better.

Hi John and Deb, this is Howard from s/v Jazz, Maramu #144.

We just finished a 3 1/2 year refit (restoration, really) of our Maramu which
included repowering with a 75HP Yanmar 4JH4-TE. If you go to the Photos
section, look for the album sv JAZZ which documents the entire process. There
are several photos of the engine installation. You might also consider
replacing the stuffing box with a dripless unit (we used a Tides Marine) and a
large alternator (ours is a Bomar 210 amp that mounts directly to the engine
with a kit made expressly for the Yanmar by a company called Altmount). Because
the Yanmar puts out 13 more horsepower than the original Perkins we also went up
an inch in size on our Maxprop.
