Sea Scout Ship in need of a A-4 for P30

Hey guys and Gals. I am a skipper for a Sea Scout Ship in CT and our A4 is toast. We really could use any help finding a inexpensive or donated Atomic 4 to teach the boys and girls of our Ship. Please Help.

Fundraising

Some sea scout ships take donations and referbish the boat to sell in order to raise funds to keep their Ship "Afloat." Currently, we have a P30 that is our only vessel and it's A-4 is done. There is nothing worse than a sailor stuck on land. Most of the youth we work with are at risk and never would have the chance to sail if it wasn't for this program and the wonderful donations we recieve from generous people like yourself. We are currently in the market for a replacement engine but boat donations are always welcome.
Thank you for your response to this post.

I think it's going to take allot more proof then a simple post on a sailing forum if you are real. Pretty guttsey just coming here asking for $
Asking for $ for a A4 is just wrong!

clarification

The boat we have is a P30 with a blown A-4 we are willing to pay for the engine but we don't have a lot of money. Because of the non profit status a donation to the scouts has a benefit to the person doing the donating. We have10 sea scouts without a boat because the engine is blown. We are not looking for money we are looking for an engine.

The most connected A4 guy I know is Don Moyer at Moyer Marine Atomic 4 Engine Rebuilding and Parts. He may know where there's a motor for you. A local outfit (Boston area) that stocks parts for and works on A4s is Hansen Marine - Hansen Marine Marblehead MA. There's a slight chance they might be able to point you to someone, but I'd try Don first.

Denise, The way I read it they were looking for an engine (cheap or donated), not $.

Skipper , you will probably have better results if you have someway of verifying that you are whom you say you are. A link to the ship's website, or even the BSA Council's site would be helpful.

I'm a hopeless cynic.... no cure that I know of! yes I read it wrong, sorry bout that skipper.

This kind of reminds me back in the day when I had a larger Biz.. We would take window ac units found and get them running. give them to organizations that would give them to shut in or terminally ill people then call me and demand a warranty! One time I made the mistake of having my installers hook up a "used" central air system the owner provided. OMG big mistake!

Skipper do you really want young people riding with all that gasoline on board?

Every time you get into a car, you have the equivalent of "all that gasoline" on board. If you have a garage, it's stored in your house, too. Gasoline has been and remains the primary fuel for small vessels since the early 1900s. Not many of us can afford to put a $10,000 diesel in a $9,000 sailboat. All you need to do is run the bilge blower, check the hoses once a year and have fun. The so called "safety" benefit of diesels is not supported by real world facts or problems. I have young people on my boat all the time and I think it's a most excellent idea.
