Looking for used SD40 saildrives

We have experienced severe electrolysis, which has damaged the casings of the SD40 saildrives on our 2001 Lagoon 410 catamaran. The yard wants to sell us brand new whole units, to the tune of $15K! We've asked about just replacing the casings to the lower units, which is what is damaged, but they say there are none available in the States. Anyone know of a source for used components like these?

You might check with Yanmar Marine Distributers & Dealers:
Yanmar Marine

Tell them you are located in their geographical area, as they each have protected territories.

Thanks--we have already. They say that there are no new casings currently available in the States! Don't know whether that's true, or whether they just want to sell us whole new units.
