And I’m sorry, I certainly didn’t mean to knock your new JD engine. I’m just old school and scared.

I know those engines are built to be reliable and super efficient.

I appreciate all opinions
Actually did a bunch of research before going all electronic, happy I did but certainly was a debate.
I also went with the M0 rated engine which means it’s pretty much designed for continuous tug boat duty so that should help extend her life.
