Unhappy wanted running Atomic 4

I am looking for a running Atomic 4. We have a tartan 1978 tartan 30 with a dead engine! We were taking our annual Fall trip up the CT river from Old Lyme to Portland when pulling into the slip. I put the boat in reverse to slow the boat down, when the engine made a terrable noise then shut down! I tried to start the engine again but no luck I removed all 4 plugs and all 4 were full of water!!!!! I do believe the engine suffered a catastrophic failure. I now am looking for a running A 4 to replace the dead one. Please help!!!!

Larry,

Have you considered that you may have simply over-cranked your engine while attempting to start it? I realize that while this would account for the water in the cylinders, it wouldn't explain the noise. However, if you could clear up the water and get the engine started, you may find that whatever caused the noise isn't as big a deal as you now think (something around the prop?).

Have an atomic 4 ready to go

I have an atomic 4 engine I pulled out a 1963 Pearson Triton 28' sloop. It's only been used a few times by the previous owner and is in excellent shape. However, I'm replacing it with an outboard as I don't need that big of an engine anymore, so let me know if you're interested still and I'll send you pictures and more details.

Sincerely,
Ethan Elgersma
