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

There is some great feedback here, thanks to everyone for the input! After reading these threads I've decided to explore the rebuild option myself. I'm good with a wrench, having tackled many auto engine jobs myself, and I think this option is at least worth exploring before I pull out the checkbook. I love the personal pride/knowledge that comes with a DIY project. Grasping the importance of a reliable motor out on the water, I anticipate many hours of research and labor in my future. I plan on meeting with the mechanic at the yard to get a better understanding of the problems...I used the motor all season, and while it occasionally had a rough start, I found it to run like a champ!

The Moyer website seems like a good place to start, and I know I can always rely on the forums to help clear up any questions.

Thanks again for all the input, I never expected such thorough feedback.

Wish me luck!

Chris
