I would walk away and keep looking unless they are really that hard to find.

They're easy to find. But you'd have to import it from the USA then. Around here the options are 0. There's 2 boats in this whole country with a good wake; my Nautique 2001 and this X-Star. A 2001 X-Star in good shape goes for around 25K in the US, right? Before you have it on Costa Rican soil you'll have spent another 7-ish K. So, for someone it will be worth it fixing this one up. I just don't have all the money in the world, nor am I looking for an endless project.
If I happen to find an affordable engine somewhere I think I'll go ahead. Otherwise it'll probably sit there for another 5 years. Or 10. Or...

I'd wish. One of many vehicles of the owner of the boat that doesn't get used.

Losing the fuel injection and putting a carbed motor on it seems like a reasonable solution. I considered it many times, but want retain as much resale value as possible.

What's the owner think its worth?

Wow. Craziness! Good luck with the rebuild. You will learn a lot about your boat in this long process. Can't say that I envy you though.

Based on where the boat is parked - some frugal purchases and time will get you on the water...wont be cheap - but +1 on the carbed option.

Yeah kind of my idea too. It's definitely an option, for now I'm still seeing what the other options are. Possibly trying to get the boat for next to nothing, and just wait for the right used engine to pop up. I have a good boat so I am in no hurry.
What the owner thinks it's worth? Supposedly he thinks 10K or a bit less, but he thinks the engine needs just a little bit of work. I don't think the owner has even seen the boat in the last couple years. When I went to see it an employee showed me the boat.

Thanks for looking that all up! I don't think THE engine is in there, but it gives a good idea of what's out there.
