I'm extremely familiar with the Lehmans -- a great motor that is almost bombproof. I know of one that is running like a top at over 10k hours. However, I would prefer to get >10kt out of the boat for some of my longer trips (ME -> NS as an example). From what I have researched, that means going >250hp per engine, provided they can fit within the machinery compartment on the boat. Would love to hear opinions or real-world experiences about going through an repower upgrade on their boat, especially the wood hulls.
For reference, this is for a GB 42' woodie.
Thanks in advance!!
