I couldn't agree with you more re electrionics, which is why I'm a CAT man, but they is big and they is heavy, The same can be said for that Hull. it's built very strongly and meant for twin outboards. The electronics is getting more and more difficult to avoid nowadays however.
To get good performance from an inbosrd on this boat it would be nice to keep the power to weight ratio similar or better than the original outbords. Dontt forget the diesel going to beed some form of drive system which will also add weight.. 325 kg gives 265 hp and 550nm at 2000rpm
The power to weight from these little devils is great and the engine is so well sussed for access to mainenance parts, that I'd certainly give one a go for leisure ppurposes before I bought a Yanmar.i think its the 6lb/260 which is very close in specs.
Now enough about Fantasy Boats I can't afford can you tell me where did you get the plates from to shove a Trooper engine into your Landie 110
