Why was the one you had surveyed not chosen?

I don't know that engine choice is going to be the highest on a selection list. There's a ton of other things to consider about a boat, the engine is pretty far down the list. Sure, there's going to be condition/hours to consider, and some engines are regarded as better/worse than others... but that's quite often influenced by how they were designed into a given boat. Not always on just the engine alone.

Likewise you're not mentioning how and where you're expecting to take the boat. What works for one area might be quite different for others (parts availability in remote situations comes to mind).
