New Marine Engines versus Remanufactured

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Recent EPA requirements imposed this year on “NEW MARINE ENGINES” now require you to use a more expensive catalyzed engine when repowering your boat. However there are not any such requirements in place for repowering your boat with a REMANUFACTURED MARINE ENGINE.
