      I think you only need a marine alternator and marine starter when you enclose
      the engine so much that fumes can possibly collect instead of dissipate.
      With enough ventilation (as per the regs) the fumes cannot collect so you
      don't need the special marine equipment. At least that's my read on this
      stuff the last time I looked at the regs ...
