    Hi Evan – My name is Chris Hill. We’ve recently bought hull #200. She’s located in Washington NC, on the Pamlico River. We’ll be putting a Perkins 4154 in her, and hope to have her splashed this fall. It will be her first time in the water in more than 23 years!

    Would this work? Great company and ships very fast to the US.

    Out of curiosity, Kalinowski, what happened to the W58? Did you part it?

    Thanks, all, for the suggestions. I have a completely rebuilt 4-108 in my garage that I could also make work, but it would be a little underpowered for the 424. I’ve also had a 4-236 in a larger boat and just loved it. Older diesels have disadvantages, for sure, but rebuilt from the sleeves they are at least simple and straightforward. Not to mention a whole lot less expensive, as the cost difference could easily run to 15k. And Perkins parts are still pretty easy to come by.

    I’m just weighing the options.
