I would guess a .67 size engine. The reason I say that is most sport 40 boats are about 36" and around 18" wide. Wish I could be more Help.

I wood definetly put a 496 big block chevy with two turbonetics 88mm turbos set at 30 pis of boost. That should roughly give you about 1,800 hp LOL!!! What do you guys think , mabe to big on the turbos? LOL ........Ya a .67 would be nice but i would wiegh it first. The older boats are real heavy.
