That boat would be a great candidate for a big block if the drive could handle it.

A 351cleveland is not a big block. You can actually install the 351c heads on a windsor.

All of the 351's are small blocks.

Yes they will bolt on but the water jackets do not line up as the intake manifolds are different but I have see the heads modified to do so.

BTY the Cleveland came with either 2V or 4V heads, the 2V are not much better the the Windsor ones.

Maybe it’s 460s I see all over the ocean floor, a lot of people attach chain with floats so not to lose them.

Not sure it would make a great anchor but I has see a fair number of GM engine come apart in marine applications. IMO it really comes down to how well they are maintained. And yes the 460 is a big block.

There are old Chris Crafts with ford 427 still running fine.

Just teasing, long time ago had a flat bottom jet with a 460, the only ford power I have owned. True story, dropped exhaust valve, broke a large piece off, banged around 5-10 sec. before shutdown, towed back. Same day remove head, gouges in piston, scraped cylinder walls, damaged intake valve and gouges in head. Rotated crank, piston visibly not making it all the way up, bent rod, no abstraction. Next day replaced original head with two used valves and spark, reused gaskets with old school gasket maker. Dry ran, and hit the lake. First time warring vest while running the boat, had chase boat just in case. Ran for two years, sold boat to redneck and said whatever you do don’t rev over 5 grand or motor will let loose. Never heard a word. 460 maybe the thirstiest out there but can take a licking.

No worries grew up a Ford guy with GM and Mopar friends always yanking each other's chains. I'm sure every generation will have guys doing this.
