Hi all

      Does anybody know how good said engine is in marine applications?
I know that in a Transit they are pretty much indestructable, but things tend to change in a boat.
The reason i'm asking is i've seen a Renken 22 (US built sports cruiser type thing) that's had it's Mercruiser V6 pulled out and replaced with one, and IMO it's not that expensive (it's on Ebay if anybody fancies a look).
Obviously the normal caveats apply as to engine maintainance, etc. but i was only wondering as some hire yards fitted the Ford 1.6 and 1.8 units of around the same vintage with mixed results.
