Top view showing the taper on both sides, 12" wide tapering down (equally) on both sides to 8" at the tip. Overall installed length is 19".

An angle cut version is also available at no extra cost for those who have twin engine installations.

Well, the polished version didn't last long...

The first Victory Offshore Series polished version went to forum member 'Dominator Scott' on his 32' Sunsation. His transom is completely black and reports that the polished version really stands out!

The backing plates on Scotts' Dominator were 'narrowed in' a little at the top to clear the gimbals and also made into a two-piece version since inside access was limited in the engine compartment and the Bennett actuators couldn't easily be removed. ('custom' is second nature here )The actuators were loosened and pulled slightly from the transom to allow the new two-piece backing plate to nest snugly behind.

I will post some pictures when they become available.

Brian

P.S. Scott's old Victorys (black) have been sold to another forum member, sorry!
