I have a storm jib that has never been used. It has a luff tape.
Interested contact me and I will dig it out of the loft in the garage.

Engine installed works great see Black Arts. New Engine for Redeeded. The following is the original post........I have a C&C27 Mark V which was brought up from Maryland. I believe the Yanmar 1GM10 was exposed to salt water. The engine is very noisy, vibrates more than I like (have folding prop and know when it is open fully) and to me is not very environmentally friendly. I have just purchase a Beta Marine BZ482 (13.9HP) which is built in England. The engine is about the same size and weights a little less. Question: Does anyone have any experience with re-powering their boat. If so, would you be willing to share your experience with me.

Sure.  What do you want for it?  

Regarding your question about repowering with a Beta.  I have a friend who also sails a MKV and he repowered from the Yanmar to the Beta.  I believe he did most of the work himself.  He is very pleased with the results.
I can put you in touch with him if you like.
