yanmar killer update

Well, the insurance company sent a surveyor to look at the engine (we'll see where that goes). Asked for the #3 piston and rod to be removed for examination.

Mack Boring is pricing out a rebuild as they don't have a rebuild in stock. Still waiting to see what the delta would be for replace versus rebuild. Did get an excellent price for a Beta30 which is certainly tempting.

The rebuild will take 2 weeks from when the insurance company completes its review so I will find myself moving the boat to its winter home (Bristol, RI) around Thanksgiving, brrrrrr.

Thank you, all of your thoughtful responses.
