We also offer a cheaper rebuild using the SBT engine rebuilding core exchange program. If you are unfamiliar with SBT, visit them at www.sbtontheweb.com. The majority of our rebuilds these days are with SBT engines simply because of price and their warranty. Call us and we can discuss with you what we have found to work or not to work with their program. 

 With Watercraft Concepts complete engine rebuilds or replacements we also:

  • Do a complete fuel system rebuild (2 strokes)
  • Replace fuel and/or oil line (if necessary)
  • Convert your oil injection to pre-mix, (if applicable)
  • Drain fuel  tank, and replace with fresh stabilized fuel
  • Re-align drivetrain
  • Inspect/replace jet pump wear ring/impeller if needed
  • Watertest and break-in your new engine (about 1 hour)
  • Some models require new oil pump
  • Some models require new fuel injectors


At Watercraft Concepts, we feel that through all this discovery we will find the original problem with your engine, correct it and you should have good engine life with your rebuilt engine. Please call us at 919-946-0080, or email us at:

Watercraft concepts handles engine rebuilds in a few different ways. We offer in house engine rebuilds as well as providing SBT engines. With the growth of SBT in the last 10 years, it has become very economic to use their engine replacement program. However, we still like to build many engines ourselves. In some instances, we will only do an in house engine rebuild. Through trial and error we have become familiar with what works and what does not work. 

Our Watercraft Concepts engine rebuilds are built with hot rods crankshafts that we weld to prevent crankshaft twisting; we use either pro-x piston kits or even wiseco piston kits. We only use Japanese (OEM quality) or OEM crankshaft oil seals on our in-house engine rebuilds. We do not use the cheaper Taiwan or Chinese oil seals that many engine building companies are using. Our engines are also built with OEM quality gasket kits. 

Premium custom-patterned covers provide maximum protection and are loaded with features that make the covers easy to use.  Covercraft covers protect against ultraviolet (UV) damage, bird droppings, tree sap and air pollutants - elements that can ruin the finish of an expensive watercraft.

Designed for use while trailering, choose from two marine-tested fabrics that will protect the body, paint and graphics from the elements.  Both materials are made using stable dying processes to assure the color won't transfer to the watercraft, a problem that can occur with low-quality cover fabrics.


​                       A preferred fabric in the marine industry, Sunbrella is made from                                   solution-dyed woven acrylic fibers that provide almost 100% UV opacity to stop UV rays from reaching the gel-coat, graphics, rubber and seating material on your watercraft.  The solution-dyed process is eco-friendly because the color goes into the polymer BEFORE the fibers are extruded, so the color is solid throughout the woven fabric.  Sunbrella is very fade resistant and that's why you'll see it in marinas used for sail covers, bimini tops and boat enclosures, and it's also used for most high-quality outdoor furniture, patio umbrellas and awnings.  The acrylic fibers naturally resist moisture, rot and mildew - for maximum long-term UV protection Sunbrella is the best choice!  Sunbrella covers carry a five-year limited warranty to the original purchaser.  (Covercraft will repair or replace any cover that becomes unserviceable during normal use - subject to factory inspection).


Glen-Tuf™  Made of woven polypropylene by the same mill as Sunbrella, this surface-dyed fabric was developed to provide a less expensive alternative to Sunbrella while still maintaining good abrasion resistance, an important criteria for any material used while towing.  Polypropylene fabric resist moisture, rot and mildew and is coated for UV resistance.  Glen-Tuf is better than most OE and import covers and inlides all the great features noted below.  Glen-Tuf covers carry a three-year limited warranty to the original purchaser.  (Covercraft will repair or replace any cover that becomes unserviceable during normal use - subject to factory inspection).
