My marine mechanic tells me it is time to repower the 24' SeaSport. It has the 5.7 Volvo gas engine with 1500 hours on it. That doesn't seem like all that many hours. He doesn't tell me an exact reason, just that the time is nigh. . . . . . . (trying to make a paragraph here) . . I do respect my mechanic, he is very good. Would like to hear other opinions, thanks. The new engine package he recommends is $20,000 not installed!
