    Always interesting to read your ideas about engines, Fred, you seem to be well informed.

    Too good to be true?

    I've been reading about the Nano Tug 23.

    What caught my eye was this: "A particularly important feature is the air cooled Hatz engine. This engine does not need raw water cooling; therefore there is no through-hull opening, no seacock, no water strainer and no seawater pump. The Hatz only needs fuel, oil and air, and has been known to run over 40,000 hours before overhaul. -

    Here is a relevant link for the 67 hp version used in the NT 23.

    However, settle for 30 hp & there are these on Ebay.
