I don't know what DDs were designed FOR** ..but it seemed most diesel powered pleasure boats in the 50s were powered by Detroit Diesels. I've heard much talk about how DDs were great oil leakers. How does that happen? I looked in my 1953 Motor Boating magazine for DD ads and found none. Many engine ads for other makes. Saw many boats in the mag w DD power though. We've been in Ketchikan for 2 days and I bought 2 cans of Dolfinite. And there it was in the 1953 Motor Boating Magazine.
