    Nearly finished re-building a 1980 Sportcraft 210 C-Eagle. About to re-fit engine and plan engine compartment layout. Big empty space nothing in it!

    Could do with some ideas on the layout and any pics would be a great help.

    Here's the space!

    Don't know what you're working with. Here's my before and after. I wanted everything clean and off the stringers.

    Good luck and lot's of time...

    Thanks chaps i just need some ideas on the layout and positioning of all the kit. Batteries, filters, trim/tilt pump, bilge pumps, blower..... Its a blank page right now and this is the chance to get it right. Based in England but like to see how passionate you chaps are about this stuff. I am very much obliged for your input.

    Install parts to get the weight forward. Balance the weight port/starboard. And install stuff where it is easiest to work on.
    These pics are my old setup. Everything is gutted now, I'm repowering with a 8.1 375 HP Mag and B3 drive. Also installing a 70 gal belly tank along with the 85 gal main fuel tank. I'm in a burned out faze now, So nothings getting done. :ashamed:

    Here are a few pics of my engine box. Its a Vovlo 40 series, I have a 4d bat for starting duties mounted on the port side of the compartment, another battery is mounted on the starboard side for backup and aux duties (added since the pics were taken) and is charged via a battery isolator.Other than that pretty straight forward. This is mounted in a 23' sportcraft. The decks have all been redone, including a 1000lb fishbox, and twin 55 gallon tanks.
