I have a new port 30 with an M4 30 diesel,,  I plan on buying a new port 33, it has a 5416 universal diesel,, I want to swap the engines and put the M4 30 in the 33 footer ,,, and put the 5416 into the Newport 30.... is this a good idea bad idea, how big of a pain in the ass  will this project be?   It seems to me that a 2 cylinder  diesel is much too small for a 33 foot sailboat,,,,, does anybody have any ideas as to what I am in for, has anybody else done something like this,, I appreciate your feedback thanks, Bruce

Have you tried the existing engine? There are many 33 footers that came with ONE cylinder diesels.
At any rate, this is a very big subject, about which I know little.
You may want to try a forum that specializes in this type of thing.
I can't think of one off hand, but I know they are out there.
