try posting on boatdiesel.com as well. 170's in a 32'? That seems hard to believe when the factory puts 315's in. I wonder why someone would do that?

I have these engines in my 28 Bertram. Shes no rocket ship at 20 knots, but using 11 gph total at cruise, they practically make fuel.

I have 2400 hours on mine and they run like new. Great little engines.

Isnt the 300 Cummins even a little light for the Luhrs 32? We had 340HP Marine Power's in there and then repowered with 350HP Yanmars. I felt at times I wished we went with 370HP Cummins in there. I dont think the factory put in less than 340 when we bought ours atleast...

Yes the cummins is a little slow for that boat but a lot faster than the yanmar, plus he is getting them for a great price. The yanmars however, is great at the feul pump.
