Default Arenson AS7 to Bravo XR

I know this would technically be going backwards but Iím looking at a boat(minus power and drives) that was cut for AS7ís. I want to use Bravo drives because I have access to them for cheap. The seller hasnít drilled the new transom yet but thinks a Bravo drive would line up to the Hole cut for the AS7ís. Anyone think it would work?

Not sure exactly what you are asking but if the boat had the asd7 arnesons conversions mounted on the boat you will have to fill the holes where the the transmissions were mounted in the transom .

He doesn’t have the arensons.

He cut the rectangle opening for them In a new transom and quit there. My question is would bravos cover the holes below or would I need to fill them in and start over.

I would assume, (and we all know what happens when you assume something) that the hole would be lower and larger than you want for a Bravo, if the plan was to move the transmission back into an extension. Which is what it sounds like because you say rectangle hole. If it was just the shaft and a drop box it would be a small round hole. Without dimensions and pictures, it's hard to say.
The picture is an old ASD 6 replacing a Bravo.

The inside hole was for the bravo's the next line was were I cut for the arneson asd7 conversions so if the hole was cut for the conversions the answer is no

Haha I'm not doing it myself, just helping a friend with parts of it so I didn't want to start a thread on it. Currently having computer issues, new MOTEC system on the way to fix everything.
