I don't know. A few years ago I had a one cyllander yanmar rebuilt and sitting on a pallet under my boat in the yard, when huricane Wilma flooded the yard, and knocked my boat off the ways and it landed on the engine. Cayastrophy right? not compared to what it did to everything else I owned and our buisness in Isla mujeres. Any way's, it set me back. my point is I'm sure you could put a rebuilt engine in Heron and raise the price $5,000 grand. You'd probably break even. A new yanmar, which is what it deserves, is like $6,000 last time I checked. Plus the other several grand in sh!t you'll need and special tools, Dial meter or what ever,I think the boat is perfect now, I think was my point.
