Here is a 18Ft Kayline Clinker ski boat powered by a 350 Chevrolet engine. This is a fibreglass boat, in a clinker style, not a wooden clinker. Great fun over the summer, and can reach fast speeds with all that power and the large prop.
The propeller is direct driven off the opposite end of the engine to the flywheel end, which allows the engine to sit lower in the boat and increase stability etc.
