Re: Removing Atomic 4 Engine from My Catalina 27

It would be cheaper, and the next owner could easily install a diesel, or you may change your mind or even come across a good cheap small diesel.
Here are two very small diesels that might work if you wanted to reconsider and follow Boracay's idea:

Farymann Diesel :: North America 7hp, 140lb.

14 a4 Beta Marine US Ltd. Distributors for Kubota based marine diesel engines and generators for sailboats, yachts and trawler boats. 14hp, 190lb

I have no idea what either one costs. The Betamarine is an A4 replacement so the mounts and alignment should match your existing.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.
