Don't know what the boat is, but the engine appears to be a zenoah g230 with the head cooling fins removed and homemade water jacket added....

If it is a G230, then it's 23cc. Would go very well indeed in a Sea Queen

Don't forget to mix some good 2 stroke oil in there, not chainsaw oil though. Mix about 20:1 petrol to oil

Boat hull looks like an Aerokits - possibly the Queen, with an OD superstructure (which doesn't look as if it goes with that hull anyway)..

Hard to see from the photo, but I would say the deck planking, rubbing strake and keel are pure Aerokits. The inside might have been cut back, of course. Are the external dimensions the same?

Could be one of the early 46" Huntsman kits.  Looks very much like mine did in 1970's.  Again looks ,as someone said already, as it has a home designed top
