Default I'm downsizing. 225 Promax on a 13ft boat!

I've been building this little 13 footer for about a month now. I got the motor on today. I still gotta get the interior done. It's a little overpowered, but it should be a trip!

Here's a link to the whole build from the beginning

Sweet!
Make sure the two bolts holding the motor are stainless or else your rigging might be called in question, love the steering cable and don;t forget the bungies to keep that thing down and when you go in reverse....

I thought I was ambitious putting a merc200 on my 16'

That will be an absolute blast!
Although that thing is so small, it will probably porpoise you to death.

Also will want to sink at rest with all that weight in the rear.

Have to say, the build was looking good until he decided to roll with the arch.
is there a link to any video?
