George,

I am guessing by your signature you work for Beta marine? What is that product someone mentioned that is a good replacement for A4? And what's that cost?

Also, though I realize this is all subject to specific conditions of the boat, what would be the professional installation cost? If you can't give me the price for whatever reason - just a ballpark number of work-hours would do, I can multiply it by whatever labor rate here happens to be

Regardless, you will be having to deal with installation whether you choose a used/rebuilt or new engine.
