What engine is in your cheoy lee?

I've got a clipper 42' and I'm not sure what was originally in these boats. I've currently got an older Isuzu C-240 (actually a "QD" - some outdated nomenclature for the same engine) which seems to have been hand retro-fitted to bolt up to a 2:1 Velvet Drive.

But my maintenance log clearly says this was not the first engine in the boat.

The maintenance log was started by the third owner, and I have no idea what was originally in it. I'm kind of curious :-) Supposedly the motor was totally blown and was yanked out in 1981. I sort of wonder how someone blows a diesel engine in 10 years, but I guess it's not that surprising. Of course the engine that replaced it is easily as old as the boat and still running strong.

But what came in your Cheoy Lee?
