Rick,
Setback will be the key...an 18 inch bracket and you will be rockin' plus we need to either get that 3 man bolster in a stand up setting or find you some stand up bolsters.

I have the bases in the garage to make it standup, but I will do the transom and bracket first, for now, it runs good at 50-55 with the low motor, and will run 60 loosened up, just in case I need to pass somebody, better to run slow and safe, than get carried away
