Default 35 Motion with triple outboards

I'm rigging a 35 Motion with triple outboards on CMC jackplates, where should the outer outboards be rigged, how close to the tunnel? the engine height is 25" for the outer engines and 20" for the center engine? also some help as to engine height both for the outer engines and the center engine would be appreciated.

I really don't see where trips will help you much if any maybe just use more fuel. The extra weight, fuel cost, covering the tunnel less air gets thru plus the cost factor for the engine and rigging VS any MPH gain, really makes no sence to me. Just my two cents.

Do you have any pictures of your 35 with outboards? I have been thinking about building one like this.

Did you buy the yellow boat in Florida that used to be a race boat?
