Replacing BROKEN Yanmar ENGINE MOUNTS (Beneteau Oceanis) - EP 02 - Sailing Beaver

In this episode we are replacing our broken Yanmar engine mounts ourselves whilst up on the hard in Ipswich UK. Since noticing a lot of vibration and clearly visible cracks in the existing mounts we ordered replacements and gave it a go. Whilst the boat is lifted we also complete a few of the basic maintenance jobs such as sanding, painting and skin fittings in order to get the boat back in the water and continue our journey south.
A couple from Australia and Norway who set sails from Norway on a Beneteau Oceanis 40 in late 2018 to explore the world by sailboat. (Yup, another sailing couple doing the standard route and documenting it on film.)
