Broker's Notes and engine hours analysis OLD ROSIE was built by Patrick Beatty of Nova Scotia who gained some renown for producing commercial vessels. He passed a few years ago having built his last boat while in his 80's. A survey was conducted in November of last year for import purposes. This survey is available on request. The question of engine hours was discussed with the owner. Since there is no meter to indicate this. we talked about usage in the 20 years they owned the boat. It was in the Great Lakes region for 12 of those years. They estimate they travelled some 400-500 miles annually. If you figure 8 mph, that would put the engine time at a little less that 60 per year. That's about 720 hours total.
During the 8 years they spend cruising the Caribbean, the average distance covered was around 1,000 miles annually. This adds up to some 125 hours per year or 1,000 hours. So the best estimate is that they put some 1,800 hours total engine time since they owned the boat.
The time from before their ownership is unknown.
Total hours is not the best gauge of engine condition. It's more dependent on the quality of the make and model. And even more so the usage, care and maintenance. You could ruin an engine in a few hundred hours of abuse.
The naturally aspirated Ford Lehman is one of the most reliable and long-lived marine powerplants ever produced. Reports of their lasting 10-12,000 hours or more are common. And in the current application, they were often "easy" hours, operating at 50 or 60% power while motorsailing.
Diesel engines are fairly simple devices, depending mainly on their high compression. They rarely fail without warning. If it starts easily, doesn't smoke excessively, develops power smoothly, and maintains temperature under load, it is likely going to last a good while yet.
If there are further concerns about engine condition, then an engine survey may be conducted. Standard Lehman models such as the one in this vessel have injectors that are easily removed for compression checks.
