Hi we are planning a voyage this summer to one of the most remote places in the world and will travel thousands of nautical miles between areas where we can get fuel. As such we will be carrying lots of diesel and would like to have a 9hp or so diesel outboard.

Does any one know of any reliable diesel outboard engines?

Does any one know how reliable and durable they are?

Thank you!!!
