Beta Marine will make a decent motor... in 10, 14, 16 and 20 hP.

They look a good motor.

I have no connection with Beta Marine.

Avoid Volvo. I mean it.

Beta Marine uses a Kubota block and many of the parts are available at very reasonable prices.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

What do you have against Volvo diesels? Every boat I have chartered in Europe came with a Volvo diesel, and we never had any problems with them.

Volvo parts are unrealistically expensive to purchase at least here in the USA.

RXBOT is on a distinguished road
Bukh engine

Designed for marine use, not a marinized industrial engine. Used for lifeboats etc. Readily available in europe. The 10 hp. should be sufficient.

Pegasus...

In 1997, I split the exhaust manifold on my olde MD17C. It was my fault.

The cost, then, was £1300, then about $2200, FOR AN EXHAUST MANIFOLD FOR A 20 YEAR OLD MOTOR.

A piston and liner kit, you need three of them, each £300, then $510, total $1530.

Final drive oil seal, one of, £49....sourced elsewhere fo £3.50 (ABC in Aberdeen, Scotland).

Volvo would not seel me oversizes to rebore the motor.

Check out the price for their starter motor too.

Don't learn this lesson the way I did.

Don't buy one. I will never buy another.

Are you listening Volvo? Do want the details?

Expletive to the lot of you!
