This is kind of a long shot but what the hell...
Would anyone know what engines they offered in this boat with a Berkely pump?
Or anyway i could find out what from the hull id what came in it?

There really isn't any way to know for sure.  The issue is at that time you could buy anything from a blank hull to one with only partial rigging (install your own engine) or one ready to run.

Good luck with your search.

If you don't mind me asking, what's the reason you're trying to figure this out?

Never had one...

I had a Schuster 16 with a Berkeley and it had a 302 Ford in it.

Actually ran quite well for what it was.

We picked the boat up in an estate sale for $300 and I think the engine was factory original.

Best guess was 50mph but would turn like a mofo.

Fun little boat. The guy I sold it to still has it and it now has a fresh 302 with a Pro Charger on it. I think it still has the original thru hull exhaust.

Well i bought the boat a year ago and my fault for not researching alot more then i did, but it had a 455 olds from a mid 70s car. It ran ok...had a stock manifold with a quadrajet on it which didnt have working secondary's. I put a new carb, manifold, bigger oil pan and the drain back from the heads...well i spun a bearing over the 4th.(thats my other problem) I just wanted to find out...before i mess with the pump if it has the wrong size impeller on it.
