Thanks Gerald!
I also had endless trouble with the original Volvo Nausikaa came with. Had enough room to install a shallow sump engine only. Ended up choosing a Beta 16. Happy so far with it. Won't steam anywhere fast, but that's not the purpose anyway. Beta or Sole (apart from Volvo but far less expensive) are good engines for these boats. Both with Kubota engine blocks and shallow sumps as optional. Let us know how it goes.
