Toyota 4 cyl conversion sump design

I am planning to fit a Toyota 4 cyl diesel automotive engine into my own design 29 foot boat. I could do with some input on sump design. I have done all the basic conversions and have fully rebuilt the engine. I understand the sump needs extra baffle plates to prevent oil surge as well as a deep well for the oil strainer. Any input or comments would be much appreciated. I have built and fabricated just about everything on this boat and want to get the motor right now. Also where is the best position to exit the exhaust? Ideas to prevent water ingress thru the exhaust?

Hi
Can't help with the sump but here's a diagram from Yanmar that should help with exhaust layout.

Hey Brian thanks a span! That diagram is just what I need and that configuration makes a lot of sense.

Make sure you put a seacock in the exhaust line if you're planning on making any bluewater passages. In heavy seas, the seas can force enough water into the exhaust system to hydrolock the engine, so you need to have a way to close it off when sailing in such conditions. When motoring, it isn't an issue, since the exhaust pressure keeps the water out.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
