We bought #75 from a very nice couple who had discarded the frozen A4 in the boat when they bought her and instead installed a real Rube Goldberg arrangement -- a 10-hp Tecumseh, air-cooled gas engine with a plastic jerry jug outboard fuel tank that sat in the cockpit. Basically a glorified lawnmower engine. PVC pipe for the water that cooled the air exhaust. The engine "mounts" were two hunks of West Systems epoxy glued to the hull, with the bolts screwed down into that. So we tore everything out, down to bare hull inside, and built engine beds of laminated apitong, glassed to the hull, mounted a shelf for a new stainless tank above the Yanmar, etc. etc. Was quite a project, and much more expensive than I realized. But now we have what is essentially a new engine, new installation, new tank etc. Have also installed windvane (that came with the boat), roller furling and lazy jacks for the main, had new dodger cover and sailcovers made, new teak hatchboards and a gorgeous mahogany table to replace the original (will send photos when all is in). I knew the B29 was a tank, with great lines and an easy motion, so I was willing to undertake a full restoration. I will probably put an electric windlass in over the winter, but for now the manual Lewmar is OK. Our primary cruising grounds are California's Channel Islands, which are pristine and beautiful but can also be quite rough -- and there are no fully protected anchorages, so you want a boat that can handle bad weather. Really looking forward to spending some time with the boat during the summer.
