Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear. I was asking for the average cost to eventually rebuild/overhaul the 16hp Yanmar "Engine Only".
For the rest of the boat, I'm fine with doing the labor myself over time since most of the work is cosmetic in nature and doesn't affect the boat's sailability. Getting out on the water with a boat that is seaworthy for only $12k doesn't sound like bad deal to me.
Just out of curiosity... Where did you come up with the 28K figure? Is that what you're seeing as an average price for this model and year boat?
