Default Scripps model 302 V12 engine

Saw one this weekend in a Gar Wood speed boat-circa 20's/30's. Huge
thing with 2 plugs per cylinder, 891 cu in and 316 HP. Layout looks a
lot like the WWII Rolls Royce V12. Just curious if anyone knows if
this engine started life as an aircraft engine and was later modified
for speed boats. Seem to remember a V12 Liberty engine.

I've also heard of a few Hispano powered boats from that era. You might do
well to research Garr Wood and his boats. I've seen photos of them in several
books. They are absolutely beautiful works of art. And they're woodwork
doesn't suffer the indignity of being covered by fabric like airplanes do.
