i would take a minute to consider weather or not your boat is in danger/nearing another serious failure. just hate to see you drop five hundo to have something else break for another five hundo etc... at some point you may want to consider 'hmmmm... how much am i willing to sink into this as opposed to using the funds i would have spent on repairs to get something in better shape.'
just a thought, good luck
