Re: motorcycle engine inboard

I have not purchased an engine yet. I wanted to make sure it was possible and find out how many horses/torque my boat can stand before I pick one out. I do however want a four stroke w/electric start. I have never done anything with a boat before so I would really like any and all suggestions. Be advised I am not totally sold on using a motorcycle engine, however a motorcycle engine would be easier to handle. I know that they are lighter than a car motor, and it would not take up as much room. The boat I am installing it in is a `71 17`Chrysler "runabout" it is fiberglass hull. This boat is for tooling around the lake not for waterskiing. This is a project for me and its jusy too easy to clamp a outboard on it, I am looking for a project this fall.
