    I put a rotax reman. long block in it ... I also filed an insurance claim since it was water ingestion related which is something often covered by full coverage boat insurance, which I have. Meeting with the adjuster later today. The motor is in, just waiting for a new starter to get here cuz the rod took that out too ...
