As I expect my next boat to be a diesel stern-drive I read with some alarm that In this months Powerboat & Rib magazine they have a guide to buying Second Hand Boats which says ""That a full service on a stern-drive will be around £500 a year"". Is it really that expensive ?.
The boat I have just sold had a shaft drive which needed no maintenance whatsoever during the 6 years I had it.
What is so complicated about Stern Drive.
I am quite good at repairs. (I had a garage for 20 years) Can you service them yourself.
(looking for a 22 - 26 ft diesel cruiser preferably on a trailer, age 1999 - 2004)
