Why do you think his listed issues with these engines might be different in a sailboat?

His twin 75 HP engines would be installed differently and have more hours put on them than one would in a sailboat thus perhaps accelerating any issues.

We're having no problems at all with our approximately four year old Beta engine. No raw water leaks or corrosion.

If you are aware of the corrosion problem ,wouldnt it be prudent to lube or wire spray prior to the disassembly ?
