hello, I have a 1997 sportcraft 252 230 volvo diesel, i/o I have engine and out drive out due to some costume work i decided to relocate live well, and make better access to engine area, the existing configuration made access to turbo and other engine components very challenging, while having it apart have since found fuel tank leaking in hull, I am strongly considering relocating tank, and installing straight drive in place of the i/o mainly because of a lot less moving parts, I have done some research and sportcraft did make an inboard in the 27 foot boat, but i have not found much detail on the 252, any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
