I have Dick Morland's 38 Sedan, and we're probable going to sell it this year.  It's at Mt. Vernon Yacht Club on the Potomac River.

Hi Rudi,  I think we've discussed this in the past, but now I'm getting more serious about repowering my 27 Commander single engine. Do you have drawings / measurements of the Medusa 400 so I can see if it will fit in the engine bay?

Hi Rudi,
I have a 1968 38 Commander Sedan in Oregon. It has the original 427's - and I am going to be replacing them with new gas engines.
I was wondering how the Medusa 400's would perform in this particular Commander?
What is the availability of these engines currently?
Thanks, Doug Harris -Portland, OR
