Tom, I had the same question about a 43.3 Bristol in 1996. I was told that it would cost 10k to rebuild the 52 Westerbeke or 10k put a new one in. Why does it cost the same to rebuild as to replace, I asked. Because, I was told, the motor would have to be disassembled taken out of the boat one part at a time, repaired and returned one part at a time, Why 10k for the new one? because the new one would have to be disassembled and installed one part at a time. This may be the same with the 40's
as the 41.1's
