292

I got rid of my 292 engine. I had a problem finding heads for it, so I went to a 350 chevy. parts are not redily available. The engine worked fine for power and running the airboat.

Good point, Richard. That flat bottom would be stable, now that you pointed it out.

cobalt327 Sounds interesting. One thing that came to mind when I read this, was the CG being kinda high because of the tall engine. Not a problem?

I don't see a problem getting the torque peak where the prop wants to turn, if direct driven. Is this the plan? Might not be a HP king, but torque should be sufficient.
