Bought a boat recently. Engine unchecked but the price was silly cheap.
Serviced and ran the outboard (Honda BF50) and got some gear oil in the bucket.
Turns out, I have a small crack on the lower unit just below the water intake. It's about 1 inch (on the outside.)
I don't really know what to do
Is it repairable? Can anyone recommend someone to weld? Am guessing I'd have to strip the whole unit which doesn't sound like much fun.
I've hunted for a lower unit but can't find anywhere in the UK. Any suggestions?
Any ideas how much this might cost to put right?
Location East Yorkshire
Thanks for any comments and help
