I agree its ugly and I dont want to start building things my purpose is to go sailing not to get bogged down in projects. What is the cheapest inboard replacement for the Yanmar 3GMD (can be any brand, can be used or rebuilt)? Does anyone know of 'a guy' who rebuilds marine diesels and sells 'em for a song? If I try putting it in myself how much could I pull off an engine swap for and is this going to be a huge PITA? I used to enjoy working on cars (note used to I am over it) so I'm not mechanically inept. Is it basically a matter of pulling out the old, dropping in the new and hooking up some hoses and bolting it down? Are their engine cranes for boats? I've seen people hanging them from booms and such.
