I agree, especially on my boat the drive and box total would add 5'-0" to my total The question was how far from the transom but as Mark responded from the shaft tip that would put me at 13'-6" closing the gap dramatically. I am still surprised that a side by side pleasure 41 with #3's and no boxes would be that far forward as I have seen many of them come out of the water on (16' ?) forks, all be it as Carl said very carefully and more than a little "tippy"Originally posted by CigaretteFirefox
I believe the key is when Mark say's they measure from the prop shaft nut forward. If the pleasure version has #3 or #6 speedmasters on it, then that propshaft nut is a few feet off of the transom. That may clear up some of the confusion about the CG seeming so far forward.
