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.

Rockter will become famous soon enough
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.
