Well, where did the summer go? Finally got out of the water to fix some prop problems and completed changing my engine mounts for the new ones.
The difference is fantastic! No other words can describe the change, as I thought all was not too bad before, as the Yanmar 3GM30(F) is a pretty smooth little number anyway. However, just swapping the old mounts with the new, checking the measurements, but they were all the same, and with the AquaDrive which means you don't HAVE to be perfectly in-line, there is no noise, vibration, and at 2k revs, it's like a little sewing machine. At max chat, 3.4k, it's just a hum!
I did have to increase the tick-over revs by about 50 as the cooker and table now had a sympathetic rattle, but apart from that, all is better than I could have thought.
Thanks to PolyFlex, you, the supplier for providing with hassle-less speed and efficiency, and to the P.B.O. for doing the article in May, I think, to tell me about Polyflex.
