I hauled the original Cat 3126 w/Twin Disc gear out of that bilge and shipped it to a guy down in Delacroix, La. south of New Orleans for his shrimp boat. He picked it up at the airport drove home put a battery and water to it in the back of his dually started right up called me, damn he said, sounds good, he was a character. I replaced the w/h deck beams in the 37' back then, I see they still hold some weight, good luck.
Got the bilge all prepped for paint, hoping to have the qsm in there by next week. Pictures to follow!

Very cool. That boat was across the finger dock from me for 2 or 3 years. I remember hearing from the previous owner that the Scania had failed.

Looks like you're doing a really nice job bringing her back to life.

Yah we are getting there. Excited to see how she floats!
