>>[QUOTE=sailingdog]UGH... Why do people ask questions but not give >>you enough information to respond properly?
Woops, sorry, will address the other info.
>> What kind of boat is it?? Does it have an outboard or in-board motor
Inboard Yanmar engine atomic 4, approx 25yrs old. It runs but I don't think it will last any longer.
I was thinking of keeping the current inboard engine as it is. It runs, but I don't want to put my faith in it.
So I would need a lifting motor bracket?
An engine rebuild is 6k around here. I could get the outboard installation as quoted with 25hp engine for 3k
The boat is a 27foot Columbia, 1979.
