    Hi everyone !

    I am starting a design of an aluminium wakeboat similar to Pavati wakeboat.
    Unfortunately i don't have any experience in a boat design but that's why i have registered here and i hope that i am going to get a lot of help out of this community. Firstly i would like to have a complete CAD project before first components would be ever purchased. Now to the boat, the boat should be made out of aluminium has a total length of 7.5 meters. The powerplant of this boat is going to be a v-drive LS-3 engine (planing on purchasing a used car engine and subsequently converting it to marine engine) so the first question that i would like to ask the community can someone suggest a v-drive gearbox specifying the gear ratio required ?
