replacing old generator

We are in the unfortunate position of having to replace our old generator while in the middle of taking our boat back to Canada. Parts are no longer available for our Ruggerini diesel. We are in the Indiantown area of Florida. First question -Any suggerstions re HONEST, dependable and reasonable places to do this? Second question - we currently have an 8 kw unit which is way too large ( we don't even have AC on the boat but the next owner may want it!). Is a 6.5 kw unit large enough for an old '77, 41' trawler in great condition? Any suggestions/info will be appreciated - thanks

Re: replacing old generator

Hi and welcome to CF

Can't help with the AC query, guess we don't need it very often this side of the pond. There has been a few posts on here about generators, worth doing a search as the slow turning 1500 rpm seem to be the way to go.
