    When the cost of running your boat puts a damper on the fun, consider a new, fuel-saving engine.

    BOAT owners—and people who hope to be—should know that when energy and upkeep costs get too high, it may be time to repower with a newer, more fuel-efficient engine. Here are hints on how:

    • First, check the information plate for the recommended maximum power. You don’t want to overpower the boat. Although a four-stroke outboard engine should be a good addition to any boat, remember: each engine manufacturer develops specific products for specific boats.

    • Have a professionally trained marine technician do the work. Ask about his or her qualifications and certifications and about labor rates, time, and price of all components.

    • Check the long-term durability and the warranty of the engine. See what brands commercial and government users prefer.
