After my overall learning experience and exposure to boats & boating I have come to the following personal conclusions:

Gas outboards are great.

Now, take the economics out of the equation for a moment.

Other than a "day" boat, say under 10,000 lbs, any inboard system especially with a generator should be equipped with diesel engines.

Today's diesels offer far more reliablity, safety and longevity than any other alternative.

Now, add back in the economics and the entire picture skews back to reality.

There are limitations to what can be done with a 454 gas engine. Increasing the HP per cubic inch of factory displacement creates ancilary issues that will have to be handled, or there will be consequences.

Never seen a drag boat with a 1,200HP 2-liter 4-cylinder in it ...
