Hi,

We're looking to repower our boat next year, from a 4.3V6 petrol to something smaller, like a small diesel (100hp ish) or a 3.0 petrol.

Does anyone know a good source to supply / supply and fit this?

Any help appreciated as I'm not getting very far!

Thanks,

Mark

No, the marina doesn't have very good facilities. I'm guessing we'll have to transport it to whoever fits it.

Yeah, most people I've spoken with say the same to start with, until I tell them that we don't want to go to sea. Anyway, it's at least 2 weeks to get to the coast by boat!

Anyway, it's a Larson, 25ft, sport cruiser. We only use it on inland rivers so the V6 is far too much. Just need something smaller.

That's very nice. I guess it won't see much river use though!!

I you want a spare 4.3V6......
