  • The problem when converting to a totally different power system is you would have to replace the transmissions also, that diesel is designed to run about 2100 to maybe 2300 rpm max. Gas is totally different. Fuel economy is vastly better with diesel, plus safety issues are critical, ie. gas vapor explosion is not uncommon in boats. Stick with the diesels

  • Ev conversion sounds best, but you need a kick ass generator and double or triple the battery storage.

  • And displacements along time if you really look at gasoline got a look at the annual maintenance about every 3 to 4 years ago to replace exhaust manifolds risers all of that into the least 1500 to $2000 per engine each time he exchangers they go bad about every 10 years there anywhere from 1215 $100 appease a diesel has a whole lot less maintenance you clean everything you change the oil the exhaust riser you take in your boiled out you may have to reach a change it periodically every 5 to 10 years and there a lot less money Ono a diesel is less expensive to maintain and Yuri seo value is exponentially more

  • Depending on fuel efficiency and fuel prices you may be better off staying with the diesel engines repair of rebuild they are at least reliable when in good running order and the boat was designed for them in the first place and safer as far as fire safety is concerned since diesel has a higher flash point than gasoline and the change over to gas entails more modifications than you may think.not just the tank and fuel lines but other electrical additions as well as fire suppression system you may want to include .for safety you know ..just in case because a fire on a boat in the water and/or in the middle of nowhere is no joke..the other equipement that needs replacement or upgrading are just as important. I live in Fl. and boating is one of the number one things here and boating safety is a legal thing all over the world. navagation lights are juust the tip of the proverbial Ice Berg. thyat boet is "{a big hole in the water that you throw money into never to get it back,,,,GOOD LUCK!!

  • Hauling that much gasoline on you boat turns that tank storage into a bomb if there was a leak. Stay Diesel. You have the Diesel motors already, and that keeps your classic boat a “classic.”. They are essentially maintenance free. I had a 453 Naturally aspirated Detroit Diesel in a 69 Ford truck. We carried 170 gallons of Diesel fuel. I inherited it when my Dad died. What a beast! if you have “off-road” Diesel powered equipment in your shop, you can get Diesel without road tax, it would be pretty cheap. I used to get 55 gallon drums filled, and fueled my “equipment” from the Drums. I also used Chevron 30Wt Delo oil for my oil changes, which I bought in five gallon cans. You must do your oil changes regularly, as well as a fuel filter and a water fuel filter as well as an oil filter for those frequent oil changes. Again, I vote and recommend keeping it Diesel.

  • I know this late but putting gas engines in that boat will reduce the resale value to almost nothing. I suggest you call Seaboard Marine in Oxnard, CA. They are experts on marine repowering and they can answer any questions you have, especially performance issues and prop sizing. Cummins has a number of reman enigines you might consider.

  • Put in electric engines along with the batteries. Then on top of that, put in Generators that can run on diesel that can run the engines at 80% load when you need to go fast. Best of both worlds. Cheap range when you want to go slow, Not so cheap range when you want to go fast. Also, with diesel this setup, your range should be about the same as with nothing but diesel engines.

  • Stay with diesel it is actually more efficient for boats, it has more power, you have longer range, and those engines will go forever as long as you have fuel. Seen a Riva with das engines and yeah it had speed but it went through 300 gals in less than 15 hours, the vessel I was on we had 200 gals and went from long Beach ca, down Ensenada and back to san deigo the gas engines are also more flammable than the diesel, you would need to put blowers in the engine compartment to clear the fumes out.

  • I once or twice went on a (sailing) yacht on auto-steer out of Nice, France, eastwards. The trip had all the excitement and interest of being on one of those kids rides at the fair with old style cars on a track. Way to make your life boring (a truly cruel fate for a Riva), which is "Born to Run". And I get you are not doing that. Your boat - your game. Should be fun. If they were designed to be diesel stick with it (I would - you wouldn't), then by all means upgrade the electrics and controls. Automate the hell out of it, but remain in control. Recondition your engines now and you have fun for a lifetime, and if Riva isn't Italian for fun, I don't know what is. Have fun, I'll be enjoying it too.

  • The Tesla electric power system would be better for a smaller boat that was for fun and weighed less, as far as that goes the Texas speed engine or rebuilding the diesels better and badder I think is the best bet, more reliable and stronger!

  • We run a D4 in our boat. Single engine boat. Gota go deisel man. 39knotts 55 ltrs per hour at our comfortable cruising speed around 23-25 knots 35-40 ltrs per hour. If you can get hold of a pair of KAD44 be great or a pair of AD40’s. Reconditioned be the way forward. The AD models are basically tractor engines. No complicated engine diagnostics. Love the videos.

  • DO NOT put a car engine in it. It will get FRIED FAST. Those engines run full power for a long time. Try driving your LS for 2 hours down the highway near redline. It will blow fast. Second, the car engines don't make enough torque to get that boat out of the hole, because the cam needs to be changed and a whole ton of other things. Leaving the car engine core plugs and steel head gaskets in salt water will kill them pretty fast, also the cam needs to be an anti reversion cam, regular car cams will pull water from the exhaust and hydrolock the engine in a blink of an eye. Also aluminum car engines don't last very long in a corrosive marine environment. Would also need a swap of all ignition parts, need a different fuel and timing map. that cummins may not make a lot of hp, but the torque is huge, which is what you need to get that boat out of the hole. In my opinion the best would be switching to the newer QSB series engines.

  • to hear someone talk so much when they don't have any clue about the subject, it is too bad that people might be thinking y'all know your stuff...The most dangerous thing out there is people pretending they know what they are talking about , I prefer when people just admit they don't know anything that way we can get better information on what is really going on. I have a relative who thinks he knows it all and he does believe he knows it all so sad because he will hurt himself and others who trust his knowledge . You all need to get help from an experienced dependable marine engineer who can steer you in the right direction...When you mentioned 4000 rpm on that cummins engine it made me think, those large displacement engines will most likely not run over 2600 rpms max. ..the cummins c series in line 6cyl rated at 430 hp runs at 2600 rpms max weighs 2300# without the twindisc 507 reduction....If I am not mistaken those vt903 cummins engines are not very efficient but they are rugged and were utilzed by the coastguard in their 41ft aluminum patrol boats that were decommissioned not too long ago .
