The ‘new’ engine for Anne-Marie

Well, having decided last year that we needed a new engine – bearing in mind the condition of the old one, we bought one from Benderloch in bonnie Scotland and promptly put it in a shed.

Last weekend with the help of Joanna, Andy and engine expert Grant we got it going.

This is a very early Perkins 4.108 marine diesel engine. Look what happens!  I think we have a motor!  Assuming we can get it in through the door.

I am a well traveled, globe-trotting vessel with great lines. I am told I give a comfortable ride for my years. Although a little worn out I am looking forward to getting back onto the water after a full service.

  1. Hi,
    On my Endurance 37, “Mr Orion”, engine is lifted in/out through large hatch in saloon roof, of course only relevant if your engine is under saloon floor.
    If you have any questions I can help with I will try & help you as far as I can.
