Welcome to Glad to have you with us

Yes you can use a car/truck engine in a boat. You need to change the fuel pump to a sealed unit, water cooled exhaust manifolds, brass freeze plugs, sealed starter & alternator. You may want to use a marine spec. camshaft.
It's mandatory to use a marine carburetor.
