ddv005:

New to this forum...trying to figure out how to post pics. All 3 motors can be trimmed simutaneously or port and starboard engines can be trimmed individually

Tuxy , I actually joined back in 2008 but don't post much. Thank you for your response to my question thought. Is your boats transom like the one pictured here? or is the transom
notched to accommodate the OB motors? Could you please post a pic? Thank You

Hey man! My engines are on jackplates...the transom is not notched. It's flat. I can easily
trim the engines just past 45 degrees from vertical. More than enough to suit me since No trim is required to trailer /load/unloed the boat.

Ok, so after nearly 2 months of waiting on the Merc guy to reprogram my modules (litealite 10 minutes of time &#128580 all the right hardware is now in place. All functions are operating as they should. Only thing needed is to reverse the polarity on the starboard shift actuator so the lower unit goes in forward when the lever is in forward. Vrods have opposite shift shaft rotation from the TM lowers I'm using and the actuators shift in the same direction for both standard and counter lowers on vrods. The reversing of the dog clutch is don't internally.

I've basically been waiting all summer on this guy with the laptop. And he really isn't very good because I had to figure out what was wrong every time we tuned it...It's what I get for living in the middle of no where .lol

Default Chris cat conversion

2Ton

Thanks for your reply. i am doing a similar conversion on a Chris cat and was debating whether to cut out transom or not. I am very much looking forward to
see how your boat performs as i am considering same exact power.

Tuxy

I just realized you have same boat as 2 ton with trips on a Jack Plates? What setback on the jack plates?

Right in man! Post pics! Love to see it!

just keep in mind that verado motors have an additional 5 or so inches of setback built into the bracket. So along with the 8 inch jack plates I'm using it has basically the same measurements as 13 inches. I put my jack plates low enough on the transom that i can run 20 or 25 inch motors. The boat should run 80+ with right setup ....but anything over 74-75 and I'm happy. I was just going for 75 mphm ph, dependability, low fuel burn, big cuddy, great rough water capability and low noise.

I think this will for that bill nicely.
