We Bought Diesel Engines for the Catamaran – But Will We Use Them? (MJ Sailing Ep 175)

When we first bought the components for our build, we were sure we’d be using dual outboards for propulsion. But, now we’ve found ourselves with a set of diesel engines. The more we started researching, the less outboard engines sounded appealing to us … and when a set came up for sale after being removed from a new catamaran, we jumped on the chance to buy them. They may not be what we end up with, but at least we have them now, and at a reasonable price (compared to buying new diesel engines).

Before heading out to Maine to pick them up though, we really get to work on the Viking, and Matt cuts out the core up in the v-berth. The rotting up there is incredibly bad, and it will need to sit with a dehumidifier for quite some time before we can go to work again patching it up.

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from Annapolis!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
