I bet it cleans up the transome. But it also moves weight forward.

Are you talking about the reverse stagger set-up?

If you are talking about the reverse stagger, it is not new. There was a Cig on here a couple of months ago with triple reversed staggered 850's I believe. It may be new for Fountain, but not a new idea.

That is sooooo much motor in the back of that boat. Does the reverse stagger improve planing at all?
