Pull it out glass up the hole and bolt a bracket on with a 200+ outboard. On that size boat it would be the best thing you can do. Then if you want you can push the rear seat back and make more room in the cockpit.

Did they make a 21' stinger or are you thinking Scorpion?

BTW my first boat was a 21 Scorpion with a 260Merc 350 and ran (Speedo) 50 all day.

That one is the 222 Stinger. Why should he stay away from it?
I think the 222 is a very cool ride.

Scott, I just put a 21 Scorpion together with a 260 basically to knock around in. Haven't really ran the boat but the bottom looks like it might be a decent ride. How did you like your 21?

I have the 222 stinger there was also a 202 model....both look alike in every way. The 222's mostly came with a 350/alpha combo and did mid 50's speedwise. If you have the alpha i would probably go with a small block chevy as the drive wont live too long with a BBC. The conversion to a bravo drive is just as simple as drilling two extra holes for the bravo gimbal.
Mine is now setup for the BBC/bravo combo....currently building the engine and looking for misc parts.

the old 21 scorpion is a splash of the challenger hull. Depending on when and by who it was built it can either be a decent boat or a backyard bob p.o.s.

As for a 21 stinger with a turboed BBC, I wouuld think that should break the boat
