Re: Which engines would you think twice about
After owning a Nanni for the past 10 months I have had enough! I am going to re-power with a yanmar .....
Assuming this was a new-to-you boat 10 months ago - and not a repower in itself?
Anyhow I'm sure I'll be in a minority here, but the various VW marinizations (primarily based on the Rabbit Diesel, and now Jetta) use all the usual marinization parts (Jabsco, Bowman, Hurth/Z), and actual engine parts are pretty much available just about anywhere world wide.
