I notice the engine pictured appears to be powered by Coca-Cola.
Could you let us all in on this secret new innovation?

Use it as a cleaning agent, brilliant stuff. You must have seen what it does to copper coins. Not sure what it does to Stuuarts insides though,

Coca cola is a lot cheaper when there is a 2 fo 1, offer at this moment you can buy three botles for 3 at sainsbury's which works out at 73.29% cheaper than Jizer.

I never realised that Jasper was such a lump, there ain't many people make that engine look small ish

Hate to drag this back up, but i'm going to anyway . Redbay say the Volvo D6 might fit afterall, but at 750kg (about 200 more than the KAD300) is it worth it. It chucks out 300 Horsepower at the prop (Kad300 manages 272). Basically, ignoring all the other benefits (and disadvantages) of a common rail diesel, is this extra 25-30 HP enough to shove the extra 200kg? And what effect will torque play, bearing in mind the D6 produces considerably more than the KAD300?

Thanks in advance for your help and again sorry for bringing it back up, but it's an important decision and i intend to get it right.

I dunno if this is the right way to think about it, but, using your figures......
A KAD300 at 550kg and producing 272hp has to push 2.02kg for each hp it produces.
A Volvo D6 at 750kg and producing 300hp has to push 2.5kg for each hp.
Therefore, dot-dot-dot, you are nearly 20 percent worse off with the Volvo.
or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Two good points but what effect will the vastly superior torque have? I've also got to consider that the D6 is quieter, more frugal and way more refined than the KAD300. I think based on this the D6 will be the way to go (if they can make it fit).

On the boat front, redbay have got my tubes and fuel tank in, so it's starting. Can't wait!

So, remind me again.
Why did you reject the Yanmar?

I haven't rejected the Yanmar yet, i'm just using the KAD300 as comparison with the D6 to keep things simple. I'll decide between KAD300 and yanmar at a special comparison test redbay are arranging for me.

Redbay, what money is the D6 compared to the Kad 300?
