Default mvvs 150 ok in speed boat??anyone got any plans

hi i have a mvvs 150 motor and would like to use it in a speed boat . I just was interested to know if this motor,origanally out of a plane, was suitable. I understand that i would need some sort of cooling method. I was looking at putting it in a long(approx a metre or so) deep vee hull. does anyone have plans and instructions, material list etc for a hull like this?? or know of anywhere i can order or view plans for a hull roughly of this design.

Thanks

From what little I know about MVVS engines, they aren't powerhouses in their marine version. Putting a plane engine in a standard boat hull isn't a good idea, hard to cool, poor timing for a boat and no real RPM like what we use. Your best bet for that engine if you want to put it in a boat would be an airboat.
