Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Yes, survey was in water and out of water. I was there, but I have (or had) no idea what I'm looking at when it comes to an inboard. The surveyor didn't think the hoses were too bad; the marina thinks they are horrible. No mention was made about the motor moutns, nor was there any discussion of the shaft misalignment or the related damage. I would have thought that he would have picked up on those.

I don't think an outboard is in the cards. It will either be a fixed inboard, transmission, etc., or probably scrapping the boat.

I still haven't ruled out that something happened (crab pot/line/etc.) that caused the shaft to seize and, thus, the damping plate to explode, but I'll need to pull her before we can make a determination there.
