my uncle has a 575 in a 35 mitchell cove. last summer he was having troubles with it stalling out. He had numerous mechanics trying new computers, new injectors, injection pump.... it got so bad he coudnt even use it..major pain. it runs good now but who knows for how long. not to mention it guzzles fuel.

VPC, Precision Marine is a Scania dealer. I'm just the HeadNerdInCharge regarding electronics, but if you are in the NYC Metro Area (North Jersey, North Shore LI, SW Connecticut, I'm sure we could help you out or point you in the right direction. PM me or send me an email and I'll hand it over to Greg, the General Manager to follow up for you. From what I've heard, Scania makes a great range of engines, they just need proper maintenece, similar to MANs.

Vinny,

Give Colin a call @ Karen Lynn Charters in Gloucester, Ma.
The boat is a 43 Lowell, has an 800 Scania in it.

Engine must have close to 2000 + hrs. on it by now
