When you add the #6 you have to add a transmission or in my case a crashbox so the engine will have to be moved 9 to 11 inches depending on what you use.My 32's CG was forward and worked good in the 6 conversion being my optimum CG was better with the 6.A 28 foot boat might not work as good.

My pantera 28 has a full cabin and I think it is a little heaver. Do you think that would favor me for this application
