Hi from Key Largo

New to Forum here. Have a 34' Pequod twin diesel---2 6DSY70 Mitsubishi diesels. Only about 20 of the fiberglass Pequods were made (1977) from a mold off wood lapstrake boat in the Northeast. At least one diesel needs a rebuild. Blue Ridge quoted me $6,000 for total re-build kit which has to come out of Japan. So, I figure a rebuild is going to cost me around 10k per engine. They also said that the 6DSY70 is a beautiful engine, like a "Rolls Royce" having cost 20k in the 80s when dropped into Bayliners. (???)
Any commentary welcome, cause I'm not an engine guy per se.
John
