We have a 69 Colvic Sea Rover 28ft in Monterey Bay! We have the original inboard - volvo penta
MD2 - for which is not running. Bought boat a year ago and the owner informed us engine
was not operational - although he recalls getting her to turn over - we currently have 15hp Yamaha for motoring.
Question- we wish to have this engine
back up - running and dependable- (outboard is almost useless in reverse) and the mechanic
is coming out on Sunday - anything you would suggest we consider for when the mechanic
inspects her? I have heard whispers these are great engines and easily repaired - true? Any thoughts on this engine would be warmly welcomed! To our knowledge the inboard has not been used in over 7-10 yrs. so definitely requires some elbow
Also what are typical ranges of pricing for full engine overhaul
for this type of motor
- anyone know?
Thanks so much - we are new all the way and welcome the wisdom!
