So here is the deal. I have a 1995 Maverick Mirage that has the original motor on it (Yammy 70hp). The motor has begun to get a very slight knock on it, and it seems like she is in the mechanic at least once a month now. From what my mechanic tells me its only a matter of time. He also told me he can completely rebuild my engine for around 2500-3000 with all factory parts etc. I really dont have 7-9k laying around to repower with a brand new engine, nor do I want a an extra payment for something right now. But if rebuilding engines is kinda iffy, Id rather put 3k down on a new engine and make the boat payments a bit more manageable for a broke ass college student like myself. Thoughts guys?
