I disagree to some extent.......diesels do take longer to "spool up" so the 0-36 mph time will suffer, but it should "hold" speed rather well (good for slalom), get 2-3 times the fuel economy of a gas V-8 and last much longer too. It would be a great engine choice in a wakeboard boat (heavy, ballast). I know diesel is the way to go for alot of reasons in europe.

Did you consider a 5.7 liter V-8 powered by propane? I know that's a good combo in europe as well.

BTW, that gelcoat is looking good! 2-week project? That's awesome! Looking forward to the pics as things progress.

Carpe Diem!
