Rebuilding Yanmar 3GM30F; need advise $?
I recently started restore and modify our P35. My first phase and a major scope on my list is her Yanmar 3GM30F with 3300 hours. It runs well, starts up within a few seconds but hours don't lie and after all the work I am putting into this sailboat, last thing I want is for the old tired engine to fail next year.
I am not going to purchase a new Yanmar and my intention is to hire a professional mechanic for the complete rebuild.
I am currently getting two quotes, one from our marina shop and another one from a marina down the bay.
How much should I expect this will cost so that I can evaluate the proposals?
Any recommendations on good reliable mechanics in the Deltaville, Va and surround area?
