2 more pics. He keeps on Lake Texoma and also takes it down to FLorida Powerboat Club runs. www.guardadomarine.com Guardado did the cabin work and he's by far one of the best down there. He also did the cabin in the all white 50 with the 3 Yanmars.

I have just bought a 50 ft meteor that is ready for a complete restoration with new engines.
The plan is to put in 2 diesel engines.
So, if anyone has any suggestions, pictures, links or, well anything for this restoration project i would really appreciate to hear from you.
The boat is located in the US and will be moved to Norway later this year after.

For this project i am looking for the following: Diesel engines
, Drives, Trailer, Generator, Interior and so on.

Best Regards
Peder

just as Tough as any other European country....

But on a second hand boat it doesnt apply a boating magazine over here informed (Yet...) and If the seller/builder is building it non-commercially ie. as a personal boat.

Id go with triple 5.9 cummins diesels or two some big truck inline sixes.
Mack E12 series comes to mind first.
Multivalve 12 liter diesels, can be found in Renault Magnum Big Rigs. with 430-470hp plus A LOT of torque (2000+ ft.lbs).
