If it's a TRS boat the motors are already mounted forward w/trannies. A Speedmaster installation will put the motors back a few inches as the SSM trans tailstock is several inches shorter than the TRS tailstock.

The Arnesons will make the boat faster than the alternatives hands down. The same kit produces a dramatic speed increase over TRS drives too
