    Very true, but you know as well as I do I have to follow the “letter of the law”. If it was my own boat, or side work I would do it in a heartbeat.

    It’s simply a matter of how much fuel you put through the engine

    Yes it would. I had it figured out at one point. Buy the Crowley from you, buy the QSB from Gurryman. Sell the CTA to one of my customers to fund the repower and changing over to starboard side helm, and other little things. It would be a nice, fast, family cruiser for watching/participating in the lobster boat races.

    Not if the tag on the engine says for recreational use only. I have keep the costumer and the boatyard I work for interests in mind.

    What interests? I don't understand, I thought the ratings were for warrantee and longevity based on usage. Nothing emission based or other regulatory issues....maybe I don't understand it correctly. They are the same with no different parts just the amount of fuel running through it was a great description.

    It is the legality of it. If I put a recreational engine in a commercial boat, and the Coast Guard, or an insurance surveyor catches it the owner and the yard I work for could be brought up on charges of breaking federal law. Given, it is not enforced very strictly, but it has happened.

    I can vouch for the engines he sell, mine's running great! :) And I'm with Genius, I dont know what federal would would be involved with the rating of an engine someone puts in, especially an engine that has no warranty period.

    HAHA I'm pretty sure there is a bit of confusion all around. At the end of the day it's a great engine that would be an ideal repower for any tier complaint boat.

    So I must have been drinking to much cool-aid lately. I thought that when a manufacturer produced an engine and it was tagged "recreational or commercial" it wasn't just for warranty it was for federal reasons as well. So the feds could track and tax the engine as necessary. But I googled, binged, Yahooed, and whatever and found no CFR on it. So I apologize for any confusion I may have caused. Back to sniffing glue.
