    I've been there, both the drowned and the recovery. All up it cost me about $2k, which included TD42 engine, freight, engine crane, oil, filters and a couple of tools.

    I had to pull out a modified Navara with a snorkel, and all of the gears. Turns out they had the ECU under the seat, rather than above the water line.

    The replacement engine still had about 80,000km to run in as it only had 120,000km on the odo. Engine $1500, freight $125 (from Auck), Crane $250.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
