You absolutely, positively need a marine starter and alternator as well as fuel pump. These parts are designated to conform to SAE J1171 standards and there is nothing worth risking you or your families life over, especially to save a few dollars. When I was in high school, I witnessed my girlfriend burn in a boat that was outfitted with an automotive starter and trust me it is not worth the risk.
