The F250 powered boats are running 30s, which I realized "after" we were testing these. Currently we can use very little trim without ventilation, so we think we're looking at the 5" kits and then raising the engines up whatever it takes to find the right setup. Here's a pic of the old engine setup and bracket, whereas brackets on most other BF 29s are mounted at the factory boot top level or lower.

Bob's could probably make a set of jack plates dilled with an offset if they aren't off far.
