4. Upsize with new 3jh4.

Boat is a freedom 38 which is a little big for the 3gm30 that has pushed it for 20 years.

Anyone have experience with remanufactured units? Anything to watch out for?

Awaiting pricing on the alternatives from the yard but didn't know if there were non-financial consideration to weigh.

Thank you for your help and advice.
Yes..went the route of rebuilding our 3GM30F by Mack Boring and installed by Oxford Boat Yard in Md. If you're interested in details contact me off list. It was both an eye opener as well as a nightmare..enough said...
