Yes...but I strongly suggest that you consider small blocks....or drive shaft extensions and moving the motors at least a foot forward.

That airborne picture says it all

Just an update on my 30 shadowcat.Put on 10" of setback and a Tunnel Tab.Whay a difference.The boat is much better balanced and really flies now.You can feel it at about 55mph it just starts to run.Picked up about 8mph at the same cruise Rpm as before the setback about 70 at 3800 Rpm and just a tap of the tunnel Tab stops the porpoise.Water pressures are up and the temps stay about 150.Thanks George!

Bobcat, Glad you enjoyed your time at "The Duck!" You made a good choice on the burger.
