Default Need 11cc nitro motor

Okay, I currently am in the process of rebuilding a really nice fiberglass boat. It has a K & B 11cc motor that needs to be replaced. I'm pretyt new to the boat side, but I have flown airplanes and helicopters so it shouldn't be to difficult to pick up. I can't for the life of me find any 11cc nitro motors around for the marine boats. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will post pictures and more information on the boat I am remodeling later this week.

To anyone thinking of replying that they have one to sell to Shortman, please don't violate RCU rules by posting it in the thread.

You can find K&B engines at their web site, http://www.mecoa.com
However, if I were looking for a K&B engine, the first place I'd check is with Gary Preusse at G&M models. Gary's been running boats for a long time and when I talked to him a couple weeks ago, to order some stuff, he told me he has a good supply of engines. He would also be able to help you with questions about props, hardware, setup, etc. Since Gary doesn't do email and doesn't have a web site, the only way to reach him is by phone. For a long time I hesitated and didn't want to call. When I finally got over this, I wished I had called him earlier. His number is (630) 279-2451.

I was just looking at the Mecoa website. The 11 CC is listed as in process, meaning any time from 2 to 12 weeks with a price of $450. That seems a little spendy for a K&B, especially since I have a couple already.

How about a MAC? www.cmdracing.com . If I had have to lay out that kind of money for a K&B, I'd rather spend a few more dollars and get a hot engine.
