So what would all you crew members reckon would be the average number of hours on Atlantic engines when they are disposed of?

I'd buy an auxiliary before an A-frame; irrespective of the main engine choice. An A-frame won't get you home.

As for the main engine choice, a low-tech 2-stroke would be my first choice. There are only a few critical parts compared to a 4-stroke.
