RE: trawler needing to be towed from Boca Del Toro, Panama to Colon, Panama & DD 453's replaced

"Other motor need starting fluid to get her started"

Using starting fluid in your temperature simply proves the individual is not a mechanic,DD or otherwise.

A rebuild of the engines will need someone with DD tools , not a spray can of ether.

Have you tried Gold Coast in Miami?

Sometimes he has fair running takeouts , at a negotiable price.Beware , he spray paints everything .

Otherwise look in "boats and harbors" for an operating or rebuilt pair , if you know the rotation direction.
