  • Sorry, Dude, but I’m done watching boat videos. I subscribed for automotive videos and that’s all I’m watching in the future.I’ll stay subbed but I’m ignoring the off-topic videos.

  • This is insane. If you include the man hours these things are going to have to have cost a couple hundred thousand dollars each. It’s just crazy

  • I'm going to ignore the dumbass idea of replacing diesels with gassers because everyone else has covered that and I'm just going to assume you've already done the stability calcs on removing over half the engines weight and will be locating the required ballast in the appropriate locations. Seriously, broh... just stick with cars. You don't know fuckall about what you're doing here.

  • Old folks have a saying for this. Its called throwing good money after bad. I guess since there is almost zero value in an old Italian boat then devaluing it farther with gas motors wont be too much of a noticeable loss. Never mind those engineers who know that if you choose a gas motor in a big boat you use a big block motor. Those ls will definitely not appreciate running 5 grand all day long just to get half the performance of a diesel at 2 grand. Reminds me of what I often tell my 20 something son. When you encounter a problem because of a bad decision and start trying to fix it with multiple bad decisions at some point decide to put the brakes on and just fix the original bad decision instead of the ten bad decisions because of the first one. Just set your expectations low and everything will be grand.

  • Ridiculous idea, but it’s entertainment. Might be fun to start a pool on how long these engines last in that boat. 200 hours? Maybe. That raw water pump looks way too small for this application. A standard Jabsco 1-1/2” or 2” would be much better.

  • This thing is going to use 40 to 60 gallons per hour. At $4 to $5 per gallon on the water, that's a couple grand to use the boat for the weekend. Chris seems like an intelligent enough dude, so the only reason I can see for doing this work (spending tons of money on new gassers when you have perfectly serviceable diesels) is that he's getting paid for the videos. It's a "watch how many bad choices I can make" subscription plan. Mash that subscribe button!

  • I'm working on a truck 5.3 engine swap into my first gen Camaro. I've been dreading paying so much money for some simple brackets to mount the accessories in a manner that makes sense in my engine bay. Seeing that you used the ICT Billet brackets here as a "test" fit got me to look into them. I was planning on spending 300-500 for new brackets, but I'm in for far less than half of that! Thanks man!

  • Chris, smart move, behind you 100%. I have a Yacht w/2 Diesels - I like what you are doing, makes a lot of sense. I have a 1985 Monte Fino 55 with Two 3208TA Cats. The vessel gross weight is 52 tons. I went thru the same process of costing out Diesel Engine replacements - a whopping $180K. The cost difference can buy a lot of gas. Some Insights: What makes diesels unreliable is that a defective water pump or cheap Sea Strainers can can lead to engine breakdowns. As you so noted, one can’t easily get access to Critical Engine assemblies to maintain them. This is exactly what I have been finding and have realized that past engine failures on the part of prior owners were a direct result of lack of maintenance of inexpensive accessories. I’ll be following your success, David.

  • just wondering, but couldnt you just only run the 24v alternator since you will be charging most likely two batteries, and then just pull 12v from the battery, that way you dont need an extra part? or run a 24v on one and a 12v on the other is you really want to have both. just no reason for the added parts unless you really want to have them. ( I am a marine mechanic not just an arm chair keyboard warrior lol ) also most stuff that Mercury or other marine brands are really just the same as GM parts, they can be had at autoparts stores for much cheaper, I also previously worked at autozone in Texas on the coast so I delt with lots of yachts/sport fishing boats

  • I'm really surprised that a guy who appears to be pretty smart with mechanical items could be so naive. He's taking a really stupid move going with gas and all the related work. Not to mention the cost. Wasted money. If he really wants to re-power...and I think he should, 3408 Cats would be perfect for that boat. They are available although hard to find. A rebuilt pair of those and that boat will be still running with his great-grandkids at the helm.

  • I would suggest rerunning the torque vs speed [RPM] calculations. Based on the gearbox shaft size it seems too small for the HP. What is the HP of the New engines? what will the Peak Torque RPM be? I would guess a 4 to 1 or 5 to 1 Gearbox would make more sense.

    Ernie SparksErnie Sparks8 päivää sitten
    • Yep, I made the same comment a week ago. It's simple maths, as you say. Also suggested checking if there are thrust bearings and adding flexible couplings. The engine build should also be for marine application - i.e. cam for low end torque, constant revs, etc.

  • Love how you guys just attack challenges like the accessory drive, awesome to see it.

    GrindhousePEGrindhousePE8 päivää sitten
  • As an old school marine engineer, I would never recommend this for a boat that size. The VT 903M's that were in there are bulky and I totally understand the reasoning for replacing them but in the long run, its going to be something of a Pyrrhic win. I still say the VT's could have been brought back to like new for cheaper. Your gas mileage and range will be cut way down but I'm still loving watching it all.

  • I hope that idler pulley by the small alternator will have the belt riding UNDER it... to get enough wrap on the alternator pulley... otherwise you may get belt slippage on that alternator. Be sure to get as much wrap on that BIG alternator as physically possible!!!!

  • Other than the thousand reasons to keep diesel instead of gas already mentioned. I haven’t seen a comment about stability, reducing the weight by a few thousand pounds is going to make it horrible and unstable in bad sea conditions surely??

  • Interesting that "B is for Build", and while you seem to have an unlimited budget for the Italian Yacht, your builder shop is missing a lathe, mill, oscillating spindle sander, etc..., and a full assortment of hardware like so many homeowners have (Ok, I don't have a plasma cutter, you got me there). If you were a couple states lower I'd lend a hand with some fab work. Just don't name the boat "Merry LS Queen" someone might already have that one. ;)

  • This is probably going to get confusing but, if u run the starboard motor in reverse or even the port motor in reverse but it’s actually going to be going forward, that means ur props are both going to be spinning the same direction and they are supposed to spin in opposite directions while going forward and opposite directions while going in reverse. So the motor that spins counterclockwise will have to have the same directional prop as the motor that runs clockwise to push water instead of pull the water and that’s going to put sooooooo much load on the boat itself and the stringer system and all that, unless u have a prop specially made and I don’t even know if u can get a prop made that spins clockwise but acts like it’s not spinning clockwise with the way the blades are made on the prop!!! Boats with twin engines are made specifically for the props to spin in opposite directions to keep the boat balanced! I can’t wait to see how this is going to work out.
