I'm on the road w my I-Mac. How much hp per ton would that be? Sounds like you're just about right on the money. That's about the only way you can get a boat powered properly is to do it yourself. You should take pride in that you're one of the few that are not overpowered. Three cheers .. at least.

Answer to your question YES.

"The engine is a Deutz delivering 145 HP @ 2500 RPM. I feel confortable with these numbers.
Wouldn't you?"

YES! and with the fact that the Deutz is an industrial based engine.

"industrial based engine"

Fred, ... Why on earth would you mention that as all "marine engines" are from that source?

are farm engines considered industrial? I believe many industrial engines are based upon agriculture designs and then the marine verions off of them. Farm engines live under the same conditions as a boat engine but industrial engines just run and run at the same rpm and load sometimes for years. I believe they are optimized for a certain load and rpm while farm engines are designed for heavy loads at diferent rpms. Never thought of this issue untill u brought it up. Sounds like a good topic for research

The Fl120 started as a truck engine, failed at that, became an industrial engine, succeeded at that, and then moved into agricultural applications as well. The marinized version is based on the base Dorset engine which was unchanged for truck, industrial, an agricultural applications. A Dorset was a Dorset.
