Best place to Re-Engine in the Caribbean???

Does anyone know where I can get a good deal on pulling my old iron genny and slapping in a new Yanmar? I am looking for a yard that is reasonable, yet still does good work.

Some Carribean states charge the most shocking import taxes on new engines. Check it out first.

I spoke with two owners who had gotten new diesels installed in the BVI and they were happy with the costs - but would have saved money had they had the work done in St. Maarten.

I have used Simpson Bay Diesel - they were efficient, responsive, and not expensive.
