Non-marinized ecu - "must be in dry place or container"? I agree with J.M

Affordable only shows Ford injection for 2 bbl and the others are for GM. You might want to call Jeg's or talk to someone at a local speed shop. Also, you could contact this company- they may be able to advise on a good/easy basic program-

The thing about the way MC does injection is that the ECM is programmed to perform in that boat, with that particular engine, it's not a generic program that gets it "close enough for most people".

That would be a fun process - working in the boat for a that given time...changing variables and seeing what happens. Confirming data from the engineers how loads would effect engine and boat behavior...etc.

If your bent on fuel injection why not just sell what you have and buy a 94 or newer boat already equipped with a factory fuel injected engine this will eliminate any preceived issues with installing a "kit" that was not specifically designed for your specific boat and engine combination.
With these kits you listed they will somewhat limit the modifications you could possibly make in the future without remapping the ECM and are limited to a certain HP range, something I would not want.
Personally a properly tuned carbureted boat will perform just as well and have the same reliability as a fuel injected model with proper maintenance, As for me I would buy a new carburator have it properly tuned and use the difference of the cost of the fuel injection kit for gas money as we all know gas prices are on the rise again.
