Perkins from genset to marine application?

Hi, I have a deal on a Perkins 100 series motor, very low millage, it is presently on a 10kw genset.
the motor is a small 4 cyl KF 30266j 104-19 IDI
I'm wondering if I could put a v-drive transmission on this engin and fit it in my boat...
I have a 1971 Cal 34

What do you guy's think?? too much hastle and money to get the remaining parts and work done...

I presently have an Atomic-4 in my boat.

Big job because first you have to convert the engine over to work with a transmission; change the injector pump from governed to control linkage (should not be too hard); figure out if the engine mounts will fit in addition to the entire engine fitting without interference. Then you will have to build an engine bed that will allow the engine to align with the stern tube which could be very difficult.

Is it a 4-108? If it is then you could use standard parts to convert because it was used in marine applications; but might be much bigger than an Atomic 4 engine when built up. V-drives were used on some Perkins 4-108 applications; but we are talking boats from 36-42 feet.
