The website is really way better than most scam sites, and it's been around a while.
I see it's based in Indonesia
, and the only thing I can find seems contradictory, saying "legit" but a review saying huge export fees
, never got engine
But only one review?
seems too low to be legit? Even if it took 3 months to get here on a slow boat
Search - beta 30
The situation I'm in is we're looking at a boat
, but it's got a really old yanmar
that has a transmission
leak and it's well, a 37 year old motor
. That you can't get parts
for easily. Owner agrees repower
, and is willing to work
with me, but I want to be realistic on the cost point. I don't want to be a jerk but I don't want to agree on ~5k to repower
with me doing the work
and have it cost 15k. (i've replaced/rebuilt tons of car/truck engines. Never a diesel
Is 10k closer to "real" cost for a ~30hp motor
Should I just try to do some crazy weird bending to reseal the transmission
case to deal with the leak and run it till it dies then deal with repair?
