I have not done an engine swap in a boat but did put a Ford V8 into a Willys pickup truck. Virtually NOTHING fits. Doing it in a boat with limited space sounds like a major project. As mentioned earlier, repairing or re-building the existing engine or replacing it with the same model and re-using the existing transmission sounds a whole lot easier and maybe not as costly?
