my buddies boat is a nightmare....... in the last 2 months. first the pump took a dump, we rebuilt it. then his MSD crapped out, he replaced it. now the engine. it's a chevy 427 and we pulled it out and broke it down and the block and crank are done. the boat is a 1987 sleekcraft 19 ft closed bow. should we look for a 427 or what engine would be the best fit? any advise is appreciated.
