ereiss is on a distinguished road
murdered 3gm 30

1. I don't know if insurance will cover it but I put it in the category of "it's worth a try". They had the survey come out this week to look at it. We'll see what happens.

Now have pricing and choices;

1. Rebuild by Mack Boring, 6 month warranty (from when it splashes in the spring) cost, about $8,200 all in (remove, rebuild, reinstall).
2. Can purchase a new Beta30 for about the same amount but install will be somewhere between 50 and 100 hours.

So option 2 costs twice as much as option 1 (no, not planning on doing a self install even though Beta says 50% of buyers do it themselves). I have a hard time thinking that new is twice as good or will add that much "value" to the boat if/when it needs to be sold.

What am I missing (other than piece of mind)?
