(note: I posted this on the diesel forum yesterday by mistake, sorry for having to doubel post, thanks)

I am planning to build the Atkin Victor Slocum (http://www.boat-links.com/Atkinco/Utilities/VictorSlocum.html) and would like to know what old inboards would work well with this boat.

The VS is 15' with a bredth of 5' and draft of 1'2". Atkins specs a Palmer BH 6hp motor and says she should do around 8mph. The prop is a 10"x6" type E columbian??

I would love to use the exact motor he specs but any close substitue would do as well. My main concerns are availabiity (of motor and its parts), cost and that it match the boat specs. I would prefer to find a marine inboard with integral gear box like the BH 25. But anything that will work with a secondary gear box should be ok ( http://www.newage-prm.co.uk/prm/prm80.htm ).
