Default Looking for a 8KW marine generator

I have a buddy who needs a 8KW marine gen. His Onan just went o-no! Anyone have a lead on a used or rebuilt generator of any make? He may consider new on a good deal but really didn't want to spend the money. Any leads? Thanks.

Check out Norpro generators. They have either yanmar or isuzu engines and come with a 5 year warrantee. Reasonable $$$, I've had very good luck with the2 I have owned.

Tim, just read a flyer on the bulletin board of Boat Owners Warehouse on st rd 84 in Ft Laud today of a Kohler 8kw or maybe 7.5, can't remember but it looked brand new w/ soundshield for $7500. Call the store and ask for the #, they are very friendly there.

Capt. Tony, send me a PM or email with the price and condition so I can forward to my buddy. What needs to be done to the gen before installation?
