What engine is this? Ebay special

Check this listing out:
eBay Motors: 1964 O'Day 24' Sailboat (item 120276952773 end time Jul-02-08 16:55:16 PDT)
for the right price this might be a 'neat' boat. But what is up with the 'engine'?

Chain drive? Looks like something from a 1900's steam engine festival.

actually, those are leather riveted belts. no idea on the motor. walk away, not a rebuildable project for less than the price of a new boat.

It looks like they removed the seat and the pedals.

Where is the engine part of that engine? Looks more like a hand crank (black handle, pull down) that then turns the shaft.

Boat sold for $152.50 .. Probably a little overpriced. I still would like to know, for trivia reasons of course, what type of drive this is. The auction page said 4hp diesel. The green think looks like some sort of a primitive sail drive/transmission. The lever on top is likely the clutch/gear shift. The belts/chains go to an idler shaft, and then to the silver thing which must be the 4hp diesel. Mounted transversely like a front wheel drive car... Look at where this prop is, obviously no way to have a conventional shaft/tranny arrangement here. Is that a variable pitch prop???

Come on.. someone has to know what this is!!!!!

Maybe

Possibly a Palmer Huskie gas inboard. manuals and restoration books are available but Im not ordering to see if the one in the picture is actually one. But that engine was an option on O'Days from that era.
