Hello everyone I'm finally hoping to be able to enjoy a boat I purchased almost 3 years ago as a boat and not just a floating apartment. My existing engine
a Volvo Penta
MD21B has seen better days and I've located an Isuzu C240 with approximately 500 hours on it in an old sailors garage. He's quite an accomplished sailor with several Pacific crossing under his belt and he expounds about the engines reliability
and suitability for my boat. I have a lot of faith in his opinion but thought I'd also consult the collective wisdom herein. With the electronic panels
and full wiring
along with a 2 to 1 transmission
he's asking $6000 CAD. Is this a reasonable valuation?
Other thoughts that have crossed my mind are: Are parts
still readily available worldwide? Or in the connected internet
world we live in is that somewhat of a given just a matter of shipping
costs for part X?
What am I not asking what I should be asking?
