What ever you decide DO NOT USE A STERNDRIVE INBOARD !!!! I/O as they are known in the
USA are the worst choice for saltwater. I made a poem about them :
I O, IO,-- it will never work you know
It will,you think
and then it sinks
Too much to go wrong. Seals ,hydraulics,electrical,linkage,gages and saltwater corrosion and electrolysis. Save your money. In my opinion ,you can't beat a 4 stroke outboard . The smallest that will give you the performance you desire. Keep it as simple as possible. The main advantage of and outboard is there in no thru - hull fittings to worry about . Most boats sink at their docks with leaking thru - hull fittings. Capt. Rocky

Sir,Agree with you and I will calculate the weight of Dieel Engine and also shaft angle.Maybe stern drive inboard is OK.ThanksNezih----- Original Message -----From: Mark AlbaneseSent: Sunday, November 11, 2012 9:43 PMSubject: [bolger] Re: MICRO TRAWLER
Well, sir, okay. So Hawkeye seems one half meter too long. And the photo of Katie Z is irresistible!Further, I only suggest you watch the diesel's weight and shaft angle carefully.Best o' luck.MarkOn Nov 11, 2012, at 4:24 AM, nezih wrote:Dear Mr.Mark,Thanks for your below comments.You know why I want to build MT?Bcs it lenght is less than five metric meters.In my country,boat owners,more than five meters,paying taxes.MT is capable for trailer transportation easily andit is enough for me at he moment(for 62 years old man).It is also easy to maintain it.I mean,expectations after sixty is not so high!!!Thanks againNezihNezih<1.jpg>
- True Doug, Ford FE gas truck engines had larger diameter crankshafts and cam profiles designed more for low RPM torque, compared to the equivalent car engines. Some GMC truck gassers even had exhaust valve rotators and stellite valve seats, anticipating heavier engine load demands.Your Isuzu may have had oil starvation issues if the oilpan capacity was not increased and the pickup lowered. I have a marinized 1956 Packard V8 with the oilpan capacity increased from 5 quarts to 4 gallons and an integral oil cooler built in. Most working boats of 25-30 feet and up have gone diesel but that may not be a practical option for the MT being discussed. 4 cycle outboards have been around for several years now and have a good track record even in small commercial fishboats that get hard use.
