engine was not running well, compression check, pulled head and have a cooked piston.
1. Do I completely rebuild the engine(is it worth it?)
2. maybe fix the burnt piston if the others are fine (1995 115hp evinrude) and get a couple more years
3. buy newer model(someone else's headache)
4. bite the big one and go new with a warranty, I hate debt- 8000 to 10000 US dollars to refit the boat
5. fit the rib with a sail
A friend of mine is an evinrude tech so we are going to tear it apart anyway but even at cheap labor charges parts probably be $2000 to rebuild
