For what it is worth, if you move your engine forward on this installation you will end up with a bloody wet boat!
It will Ok when you are up on the plane and running fast but as soon as you have to start driving the boat in big seas the centre of lift / gravity will be all wrong. Off course it may be a case of you know something that some of the very best builders do not, in which case I will say sorry for my comments. But not untill I have seen the boat perform. If you do not like your nose in the air you can always fit large trim tabs!! Alan P

The drive is at the rear of the boat and the weight would be nearly in the middle. Understand I am talking about using the boat in difficult seas. The waves will be rolloing underneath the tubes (hopefully) causing the stern of the boat to lift as they roll by. You have 1/2 tonne of metal amidships and you need to use the power to stop the bow of the boat going under water, You might get away with it in a petrol boat but the time delay between the"Lag" of the turbo and the wave will never be right. Have a look at some of the older styled commercial boats, Delta, Halmatic etc and you will see that all of these boats were designed by reputable people who now only fit engines in the back of boats. If you want to build a good deep sea boat stick a pair of big outboards on the back and drive it like a Dirt Bike Alan P

That's better, reasoned comment. Yes, it had occured to me. It's in the reasons not to do it list. One other thing I had against is the angle of attack of the spray rails. If they're a bit bow down the drive will need to be trimmed right out to lift the bow just for normal running.

Keep 'em comming.
