The two Volvo 2030MD,28HP ( 2006) with appxom, 2000hrs each start immediatly with no smoke,no oil consumption. I installed two folding props in 2013( flexofold, serviced 2018),and keep 4 volvo fixed props as spares. There are may spares for the engines(head gasket, mixing elbows etc,,, plus clutch disks). Engines used very little . sometimes 10 times less than some catamarans( 100 liters fuel from Darwin to Singapore, 50 liters from Capetown to Grenada).
