powerstroke diesel pontoon

i knew that would get somebodies attention , all jokes aside ive been doing some research ,ive seen several v8 pontoon boats and havent gotten close enough to one to see exactly how they are set up, im into doing something no one else has done , and i just happen to have a pontoon boat 24 foot , i have a 97 model powerstroke engine and all components to make it run , the help and baility to mount this engine in this boat and make iot run but the only thing im lacking is what it would take to connect the engine to the outdrive to make it go , ive heard there are companies out there with kits for such a thing but ive not been able to find it , is there anybody here who might know where or who might know what it would take

First you would have to get two fat chicks to sit on the bow to keep it in the water!

Contact a Mercury rep., they have used diesel engines in offshore catamarans so there should be a drive to help you their... I know some world record times have been set running diesel engines in boats... Good Luck with your project, I'm sure when it's done we will all want to go for a ride....

I was going to say the same thing - the drive system can't be too different from a gas I/O engine - and there are several production I/O pontoons for sale now days.

www.playcraftcraftboats.com sells I/O pontoons, although I think they are a bit longer than yours..

also - check this out!!! Playcraft Boats.

i appreciate all the info guys and i am planning on trying to make this project happen over the winter if i can gather up the parts needed , i hate the pontoon right now its to slow and i wouldnt mind going to the lake if i had a little more reason , hey patrick as far as the fat chicks go i probably would have to let the bow come up , me and fat chics just dont get along , but i did get a visual of a thong on a fat girl when i read that not a pretty sight
