C400 Westerbeke 42B compression failures

I am the original ownerof a C400, hull #87. My Westerbeke 42B diesel just failed last weekend while I was on vacation. Compression check showed poor compression in all cyl. (130, 100, 205, & 180). If you have had or are aware of this problem, what did Catalina or Westerbeke do about it. I know that the problem existed with 42B's in hull#'s 1 through 99. I have received quotes of $10,000 - 12,000 to replace the 42B with a Westerbeke 44. Any information on previous repairs and the Westerbeke/Catalina response is appreciated.

Thanks, Everett Rezendes
