Cummins 4b3.3 vs perkins 4-154

Hello all.

Iam considering a repower. The boat currently has a perkins 4-154 in it. I was talking to an engine remanufacture shop and they said that they only rebuild the 154 on request as the rebuild kit is so expensive. They reccomended a cummins 4b3.3 as an alternative. it produces 65 hp at 2600 rpm and 55 hp at 1800 rpm, and it only costs 1700 $ more complete. Has anyone had any experience with the cummins ?
