Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Studebaker Boat?

Posted October 21, 2009 12:01 AM by dstrohl

Found in the March 1962 Science and Mechanics Magazine: Marining a Champion. Craft Print Project number 331.

"If you've shied away from building or owning an inboard-powered boat because of the high cost of marine engines, you'll find that compact auto engines converted to marine use were meant for you. The conversion technique also applies to many water-cooled, six-cylinder engines such as the Champion, Lark, Falcon, Comet, or, where more power is required and light weight is less important, Chevrolets, Plymouths and Hudsons."

I have a boat in UK with a "Marinised" Ford engine, these are quite common factory conversions, but I think the firm no longer exists.

The only difficulty I can see with converting any engine would be finding a water cooled exhaust manifold to fit. Other than that it is just a plumbing job.
