    Repower Cost TAMD41 to YanMar 4LV350

    I was trying to get an idea on the cost to repower. When i look on the internet the YanMar 350 goes for $17,000, but when i contacted a local YanMar dealer they said the engine is $35,000. Why the huge difference in cost? Also on a different subject I discovered that my dipstick was missing...

    Agree with Soda, it is not all about fishing that is enjoyable on these trips. Just hanging with new and old friends is what matters most. Had great times when the fishing was sub par.
