Yesterday morning I lost a piston in my 2009 300 HPDI. I had been bragging about having 1000 hours with no problems. Now I have found out how big the problem is. I need suggestions as to what course of action to take. A new boat is not an option as my 2009 22i Skeeter is in Excellent condition and I like it. After checking with buddies at various Marine Dealers I learn I'm up that smelly creek with no motor or paddle. If you have or know someone who has a Motor I can purchase please PM me.
Yamaha is first choice. I would consider a New or gently used unit or a rebuilt power head. Thanks in Advance

Getting parts is nearly impossible. You might be able to dig and dig and dig and find a used, even blown, motor that will have the parts you need for a rebuild.

I'll contact my maintenance guys and see if there is anything out there...

Are you willing to travel or pay shipping costs?

I don't know how far you are from S Florida, but there's a guy parting out two older 200hp Yamaha's. I don't know if any of the parts are interchangeable or not for you.

Crowley Marine looks to have your piston, all other engine parts and even refurbished 300 hp outboards. They appear to have an on-line sale going on.
