Of course, in exchange you need to give up some cash. You have to take your boat off the waters. It may be worth it to have a reliable vehicle, but wouldn't you like an option that won't cost you more time and money than necessary?

Well, Marine Diesel Engines: Maintenance, Troubleshooting, and Repair - 3rd Edition is the how-to manual that gives you options.
