I don't know diddly about it, but I have flipped through several boating channels and in a few I have seen where some engines have 2 starters. They are only ever using one at a time, but two are installed... I am going to guess there is a switch that swaps the main power wire from one to the other.. Something you may want to look into... Again, (DIDDLY), but,,, are you sure the water pump is turning the correct direction??

What about the diesel generator you going to keep a diesel tank for it or you going to replace the diesel generator with a gas generator

He must have a deal with Texas speed or something so he must use their engines. Imagine doing 5500rpm and going like 30mph, that will be deafening, boring, expensive AF. Please please listen to the folks that know what they are talking about(not me)!

For all the trouble, why not commission a boat frame and do the fitting instead of fixing all the problems of your existing boat..

Running the LSX engines is gonna be bad ass, don't get me wrong, but I think it would have been sweet to run a pair of cummins 6.7ltr turbo diesels. I would have yanked all of the emissions crap off of it, upgraded the turbo, injectors, changed the intercooler over to an air to water style and upgraded all of the piping. Then I would have done through haul exhaust out the transom. Then for the transmission I wouldn't have done a reduction gearbox, I would have gone 1:1 since the cummins would be at every bit of 1100ft lbs of torque! That boat would get scootin pretty dang good with the right prop selection! Only thing I'd do with the gearboxes and props is I would have them rotate in opposite directions so they rotated towards each other, so the port side prop turning clockwise and the starboard side would turn counter clockwise. At speed its not a big deal, but at slow speed the steering is more precise. When both props turn the same direction, the boat will tend to walk sideways in the direction they're turning even when steering straight. When they spin opposite of each other then it will go perfectly straight. Either way, that boat is going to be a blast next summer. I'll probably see you out on the Willamette! I'm out on the river almost every weekend. I may even have my new boat which is a Baja H2X with a 496 H.O. EFI that I am looking at getting. Keep the videos coming bro!

Nice sparky open alternators. They have two high current brushes to magnetize the rotor inside, remember? They will, together with the inevitable gas vapors in your bilge, make your boat lift off like a rocket!

This is one of the most retarded projects I have ever seen you could have had that Cummins rebuilt during the first video all because you never even checked the oil and thought no oil pressure was a broken gauge 🤣 them little ass gas motors are gonna be like pissing in the wind on that big boat

Just curious when the installment will be out? Binge watched the first ones over the last two days, craving more. Lol as a previous owner of large gas powered cabin cruisers I'm very curious to see how this all turns out. I've been wanting to step into the over 40' realm of cruising but the expense of the diesel engines and such is scary. Hoping your boat build turns out well and I can profit from this knowledge and be able to make the leap with a lot less worry of ending with a houseboat rather than one that can leave to the dock. Lol Almost bought one that was, but the whole engine nightmare gave me enough pause on pulling the trigger that it luckily sold before I was ready to commit.😁

I worked on a 27ft inboard with 2 327's, a right and left hand. I got to rebuild them both and the only difference between the left and right was how the cams were driven. The right hand had a chain and the left hand used a gear between the crank and cam. I can't remember but the cam may have been different but I don't think so. That was 43 years ago.

Your raw water pump should run off of a separate belt than the serpentin because you'll be removing it in servicing it often

Twin turbocharging each engine with water to air aftercooler will put out an easy 500hp reliably. This is why virtually ALL Diesels are turbocharged.

Maybe he is hiding the gearboxes were on there way too. Plus olde wiring. Twin LS swap is cheaper then IF they can handle the pace.

Should have put a powerdyne Type blower on it . Doesnt need to over boost it but will give it some comfort. That belt tensioner routing will not work by the looks of it. The 3500 lb diet that that riva will have will make a big difference. like getting your big fat friend off a 300hp bass boat.

I am doing this because one of my closest dearest friends Tim who does exactly what you guys do with limited resources and time. Like you he is passionate about cars and knows his Sh!t lets say. I strongly urge everyone to help him out like we would these guys at the drop of a hat. Lets give some love to the mechanics from the north batteling more than just car issues. We fight the cold! I have sent money bought merch because I believe in people who believe in themselves. Please believe :) Heres his stuff hope you enjoy! Show some love!!

I don't know a lot about boats but rather than one gearbox in reverse, one in forward, do they have opposite pitch screws ? Not sure I know if they counter rotate or what ?

I'm going to ignore the dumbass idea of replacing diesels with gassers because everyone else has covered that and I'm just going to assume you've already done the stability calcs on removing over half the engines weight and will be locating the required ballast in the appropriate locations. Seriously, broh... just stick with cars. You don't know fuckall about what you're doing here.

Ridiculous idea, but it’s entertainment. Might be fun to start a pool on how long these engines last in that boat. 200 hours? Maybe. That raw water pump looks way too small for this application. A standard Jabsco 1-1/2” or 2” would be much better.
