Thanks for the responses. The 7hp on the Cal sounds great. I recognize that the stated 30hp of the A4 isn't quite right but it's still allot of engine for that boat, and it certainly is large. I talked to Stanley at Beta this morning, was curious about their engines. I was interested to hear that the Beta is a marine version Kubota. My impression was that 'Phasor' was their marine diesel. Anyway, at about 7k USD for the 14hp, I'm going to start looking at the reman and used engines first. And my A4 is recently rebuilt and in excellent shape so I may take advantage of those links, thanks. Nothing wrong with the engine, just my own thing about having a gasoline engine three feet away from where I'm cooking.
