Carburated Iron Duke to T.B.I

I had an idea rolling around in my head for a while now.
I have a 1985 Century Bronco Boat with the 3.0 liter Iron Duke engine.
It has 4.020 Bore with 3.48 stroke. It is virtually half of a 350.
It is a 4 cylinder engine with a rochester 2 barrel carb on it. I have a parts truck that is a 1989 Chevrolet K1500 that had a 305 T.B.I engine in it. I have all of the wiring and the computer still in the truck. I also have a throttle body from a 4.3 liter V6 but also have the throttle body from a 350 and 305. Putting all labor aside would it be doable to make this boat throttle body fuel injection. I am kind of curious about the knock sensor? Would chances of a fire in the engine compartment be greater. I guess maybe this is a stupid or way out thought that I have but I would like to know if it is plausible and maybe some ideas on how to do it.
