I'm not loving it, but I find the general perception to be overstated, unless really getting into specialty parts.

100hp turbo charged diesel.

Turbo = 3,100
Elbow = 900

What would equivalent parts be on a 100hp Yanmar? You can't compare it to a 35hp.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
