New Engine for Sea Gypsy

I am Taylor Francis, the creator of the YouTube Channel Taylor’s Travels. I have plans of sailing the world on my Catalina Morgan 38 named Sea Gypsy. I create entertaining travel and adventure videos for everyone to watch. But sadly I have recently had a lot of issues with my engine which has brought my sailing season to a halt. Sea Gypsy needs a new engine for me to be able to continue sailing safely. This is a huge unexpected expense and any help is greatly appreciated to get me back on the water as soon as possible.
The cost for the engine itself is around $14,000. The quoted labour cost to remove the old and put new engine in is upwards of $5000. On top of that is the cost to haul the boat out of the water, store it, as well as other necessary upgrades and improvements while it is out of the water.

Your contribution makes a huge difference in helping me to continue my dream. Thank you with all of my heart.
