Thought you didn't like the servicing costs with diesel engines

But if they decided to buy bare boats and retro fit a modern marine diesel in it or even marinise a Transit engine they might be on to something.

I get the idea though that its the final drive that is the problem on diesel inboards and I'm not an expert on them other than the fact they look complicated and expensive.

I saw a new Chinese Rib that had been imported in to the uk
the hull looked semi V and the grp work was well finished and the tubes where as good as any main stream makers.I have not got a photo
as it was at a well known avon dealer even as a import it will be priced at the low end.
