Backing it in is an interesting idea, but I don't think I could get the cradle down enough in low tide to clear the drives.
I was thinking that may be the case.

I agree, especially on my boat the drive and box total would add 5'-0" to my total The question was how far from the transom but as Mark responded from the shaft tip that would put me at 13'-6" closing the gap dramatically. I am still surprised that a side by side pleasure 41 with #3's and no boxes would be that far forward as I have seen many of them come out of the water on (16' ?) forks, all be it as Carl said very carefully and more than a little "tippy"

One thing that still has me confused is the proper location for the bunks....I recently had to modify my lift as the bunks were for a non stepped hull...so per the suggestions of a few members I modified it so as to not have the weight of the boat sitting on the steps.....however...I have also been told that you want the entire boat sitting on the bunks, because leaving a portion of the boat hanging off will increase the chances of having the hull develop a "hook"......So now I have the Gladiator pulled flush with the rear of the bunks....and the cables are about the same in tension....front to rear...or at least close anyway......any thoughts on this????

It's really not as bad as one might think ( swallowing hard ) with the six blades it cruises at 90mph at 4500 rpm, as an experiment we ran it 55 miles at that speed and then topped back up, it took just over 65 gals. for .8 mpg. Now if I just wasn't running that 50/50 mix of $ 6.00 gal Maximal this might be considered reasonable but...........

Guys thanks for the compliments.

BTW the difference between 4500 and 5500 rpm is to say the least, substantial, it drops to .5mpg

As you can see the shaft tips are way back.....
