If it's determined to be an accident then it should be covered

Well for starters you can put a proper engine for the size boat that you have. About a 35 hp engine min. would be needed for your 38 Freedom..however..what I found interesting ..when I looked at the Freedom 38's on Yacht World that where for sale..they all had 3GM30's with one exception and that one had a 3YM30.

Did you need a new block? 8K sounds like a lot if all they need to do is replace a piston and rod.

1. Rebuild by Mack Boring, 6 month warranty (from when it splashes in the spring) cost, about $8,200 all in (remove, rebuild, reinstall).
2. Can purchase a new Beta30 for about the same amount but install will be somewhere between 50 and 100 hours.

So option 2 costs twice as much as option 1 (no, not planning on doing a self install even though Beta says 50% of buyers do it themselves). I have a hard time thinking that new is twice as good or will add that much "value" to the boat if/when it needs to be sold.

I would go with the rebuild. That rebuild engine might be better than a new one, or at least last as long. When you splash her, run the engine a lot in first 6 months, if it is good for 6 months I would think it will be good for a long time.

If you do decide to go with the Beta, would be nice to get a fixed install price in the low end of the range.
Good luck
