Audiofn has a point. Those bottom cylinders are very close to the water when at rest.

actually im not worried at all. a stock 20" motor sits 14" high at rest (from wingplate to water). i will be dropping that 5" . also i have a true race 24 which sits higher in the back due to the tanks being in the middle of the boat. and to top it off i am running drag engines under alien cowls which seal so much better than the old style cowls so i should be good!


sooooooo.... send me some pics PLEASE.......
