Lizardhead, I am in the process of repowering my jeanneau 38 with a kubota, 35 hp. I don't know where you are, I bought my engine in Conn about 2 hrs from NYC, I picked it up 2 weeks ago, at Sound Marine Diesel.The dealer is great with support, I am installing mine. I also bought everything I needed from engine to prop, at reasonable prices, also no sales tax.I had issues for height on my engine stringers that I addressed, the engine I bought was stock from side to side centerline of motormount 16.5", mine were 20 1/4" he custom made them for me. Front to back is usually not an issue on mt spacing. My boat is 15-16K lbs, I could have went with the 28HP, I opted for higher for tides and currents in my area. If you want any info email me. Red
