Engine install

I am trying to install a small block chevy in my friends Dougs power boat but am failing at every attempt. Typical of the week I am having.

We are outside of Hamilton, anchored about a kilometre from shore when Ellie decided she would swim ashore and back. She is the black dot in the water.
The second picture is of our new to us roller furling, taken from the V berth. Colourful.

The third shot is of my homemade extension for the roller furling. I need it so the furling drum would have clearance away from the fore stay. I made the extension from two strips of stainless steel flat bar welded together. I welded stainless steel flat washers over where I would drill the clevis pin holes. Not pretty, I never called myself a welder but it is funtional.
The last photo is of my daughter on her prom night. She is second from the left.
