Diesel vs 4 stroke outboard???
Hi,I have a PDQ catamaran with 2-9.9 yamahas.Of all PDQ,s built,about 3/4 or more are with OBs. The advantages are,ease of self maintanance,lifing when sailing,no shaft & log problems,no electrolosis problems,quiet. Deisels are usually very reliable,use less fuel,but are difficult to repair yourself,expensive if you can''t.I think going to that expense with a used engine is very risky."If it ain''t broke don''t fix it". At any given time there are 15-20 PDQs with OBs in the Bahamas& Carib.The other thing is,you will never recover that cost when you sell the boat.
