Default conversion help needed

Have a poulan 42 cc chainsaw motor i am going to convert for use in a boat, i am new to the gas game so i have some questions. How do i make motor mounts and a coil mounts for this engine? Has anyone converted one of these motors before? How about a water jacket, the plug is on an angle? I have a mill and a lathe that i can use and i have read most of thhe post in this forum and spadworld as well. Most conversions i have seen are for airplanes, there doesn't seem to be as much on boats?

My buddy bought a Pullan and I think it was a 42cc also. We hacked and machined and almost mounted that puppy. It looked like it was going real well untill we noticed that the engine rotated clockwise. Counter rotating props can be found, but in limited styles and pitches. I have a counter rotating prop if you decide to use it.
