Can't leave anything alone so I decided to install a 555 BBC out of my offshore boat into my jet boat. Should be around 650 to 700HP. I have a 1984 Hallett and am wondering how you access the back side of the stringers?

I have not pulled the carpet back yet but I am hoping that part of the floor can be removed. I have not been able to find anything online on how to install in a boat with a floor. Plenty of examples out there with exposed stringers.

Here is what I got going. Holy shit I found a lot of stuff like flip flops, lighters and money under the motor.

My plan is to buy the semi-custom kit from CPPerformance unless anyone has other suggestions.

On my day cruiser, the floor below the jump seats in the back are just screwed down. About 18" x 30" piece comes out, and the back side of the stringers are accessible.

And on the rail kits, JBP has them too, made in house, I believe.

Got it taken apart today and that is exactly what it had after I pulled back the carpet.  Removed those pieces and I am ready to go.
