AnzoNevis is on a distinguished road
I repowered mine with a 48 hp Kubota from Phasor Marine in FL. Bought it at the boat show in Annapolis. Really good deal, takes up a lot less room than the original Volvo. A word of caution, at least as far as Annapolis goes, is that almost no one wants to install an engine they didn't sell you. I have a MAJOR horror story from using a very well known repower place in Annapolis who took over 2 years to install the engine, lost my prop, tripled their original estimate while doing an extraordinarily poor job of the installation (1 ex: mounting the engine on stacked pine 1x4s). Know who you're dealing with. Engine itself is fine, and I probably saved at least 150 lbs in weight.
