    Default Engine Placement

    I bought a 78 Howard flatbottom that was advertised on this forum. I intend to race it in a local (Spokane) E Boat Class (<360CI). It is my intent to put a SBC in the boat. The boat is light, has a 10* Casale with 1.29's that I know will not work for me.

    I would like to know if there is a formula for balance as far as where to locate the engine in the boat. This boat was originally being built for a BBC.

    Thanx,
    Mel

    Lowsodium Give me a measurement from the transom to the v-drive plate. Also do you know the strut angle?
