No EFI in boats? I'm curious as to the safety concerns.
Does this include electronic ignition?

I'm just curious because my boat has a GM marine block with a points-igntition, made 10 years after GM introduced HEI. I thought boats would have benefitted from HEI, so there must have been some practical reason they were not original equipment in boats.
