Still looks too low to me. Hard to tell without the dog/gf pics.

Don't forget the tie down straps.

Still low. That notch acts like a setback bracket which requires additional engine height.

Anyway. Like I said. It's good now. Rides awesome. Definitely not a lot of faith in Cape Craft. If they want their name out there this is not the way to do it.

One piece I forgot to mention. Lots of mention about 20 vs 25. The photos without the 2 plates is a stock photo of a 20 inch. It even shows up on suzukis website when you ask about a 25. That is a 25 inch And the transom is for 25 inch. The service manager actually discussed that with Cape Craft to be sure. They did say that a 20 is far too short.

Side note.....I had to repaint my aluminum prop with more chrome before I took this.

Dang you are maxed out and could have gone up another hole. You should be good though not optimal but good. Good looking boat BTW!

still a little low. could easily go up another 2 inches. add that to the 3 inches it was raised an it adds up to the fact that a 20 inch shaft would be a better fit.. be nice to know the distance from the top of the transom to your strait edge. this will tell if the hull is designed for a 20 or 25 inch shaft length. as was mentioned the step/notch adds set back, so extra height is needed.

mine is complicated by the hull being a single engine catamaran, Angler 190

for me this translates to slipping on menhaden oil.

You should get them to repair your skeg that got damaged from the motor being too low.

Sad that this combo will never be worth what it could be if it had proper motor. Personally I wouldn't have taken it just to get on the water sooner knowing that the rotation was not as desired.
Sounds like either money means nothing to owner or dealer "goofed" him over good just to sell a boat.
Someday it will be sold and buyer beware.

nah. Thats on me. I work through some flats and kinda have to figure out where I'm going first. drug a little sand. It happens. Just paint. I can use the same paint I used to paint my aluminum prop.

I couldn't begin to fathom how or why it would matter. Seems like something that people who buy Yeti coolers would care about. I didn't realize it at first but there's zero performance issues. I'm not into flipping boats but I'm sure the world appreciates your general warning to them though. Just in case.

Lol my Everglades 243 had a counter rotating prop and (a) I never noticed any performance difference, (b) single used props were way cheaper when I bought a new one, and (c) when I sold the boat for way more than I paid I had three people in line behind the buyer.


OP, glad you got it sorted, and some good laughs. I try to remember that posts longer than one sentence will be misread repeatedly, and one sentence posts are still too much for some without pictures.
