Wrong. It's a 25 inch transom

Revolutionz, did you get a chance to try and raise motor? If so how did you make out?

I did get it raised this weekend, 1 hole. It was tough to compare performance, because it was windy so there was a bit of waves, plus I had another guy with me. I might be getting out this weekend again and hopefully the wind is down so I can give it a good run. I did notice steering was easier, but everything else was tough to judge.

What method did you use to raise the motor? Is there a way to do this with out and engine hoist?

Thanks,

Did it in my drive way with the trailer jack and the skeg on a 2x6. Was a little nervous about doing it this way, but it turned out to be very fast and easy. Was able to test on second hole, and get back out on the 3rd hole 30min-45min later.

Thanks,
I just put my jack under the skeg and did it that way. Only thing I know if I do it again is get the 3m 4200 in a caulking tube instead of a little squeeze tube. It was tough to get the stuff behind the engine bracket with qtips and fingers.
