OK, got the pictures of the flywheel. There is about 1 finger's space between the hull and the flywheel.
Last yeat that caused some issues, when I was navigating 3-4 ft swells in a cross wind. My boat, as they say , is "wet" . So quite a bit of water splashed in , in fact enough that it started spraying water about 5-6 ft into the air.
eventually, that shorted out one of the plugs, but I got there on 1 cylinder.
The stern squats a fair amount so a regular bilge pump won't work, - not enough space. I got a diaphram pump to such out the bilge water - problem solved. And yes, I have a hand powered bilge pump too.
You can see the flywheel is really close to the hull
From another angle
Here is a shot of the stern area. It really closes in . You can see the positive displacement diaphram pump that I installed. Murphy's Law says, I'll never will have to use it now.

looks great miro. I would put a wooden cover on the pump, make it look old. what a sweet setup and yes it is tight.
what about also a rubber wiper against the up-side of the flywheel wrapping around a little bit? well the pump should take care of this anyway.
I like the copper stern grease tube
