Re: Repower time - Freedom 32 Yanmar

Stock 30 was $11,500 but the additional items drove up the cost. Shipping was almost $1000.

Re: And it begins

Thanks Mike. Pretty much what Beta is recommending. I will need to change my prop also since my current one is too big. Guess I could sale it for cheap.

Re: Repower time - Freedom 32 Yanmar

Here is my quote. Does not show 15% off. I will work on size regarding existing prop, prop space available and the actual opening of the current engine space.

Re: Current Boat Location Photo.

Just love these photographs, especially the closeup of mountain and moon. It is certainly very beautiful where you are... if a little chilly! I have one kid at UAF - Fairbanks. Not uncommon to see -45 for a month. Needless to say we don't head north that often during those times. I enjoy the "Banan...
