Re: $6,600 to rebuild Atomic 4? replace/rebuild

A big consideration for me would be, what's the condition of the rest of the boat?

I wouldn't sink $6k into a boat that is falling apart. I'd get the engine running and sell as is. On the other hand, a new $10-12k diesel in a beautifully restored and maintained boat may well be an investment that can be (at least partially) recouped in three years time. I'm guessing you're somewhere in the middle, but depending on which end of the spectrum I was leaning toward, would partially guide my decision as to how much I'm willing to spend.
