Have you considered painting the transom only Black? Seems popular these days & makes some sense.... hides the soot!

I think I remember seeing Smokin Joe on the Chesapeake once many years ago. Such a cool boat

She’s going to have a beautiful a$$ when you get finished with her. Keep up the good work, there are a lot of us that appreciate fine craftsmanship!!

Same question as jeff32: Is there a standard center for staggered motors or is it all hull variable? I'm also sure you've been around this block a few times and know what works.

I've and tested lots of different setups over the years and know what has worked in the past and then I go just a little farther every time. I never know until I start the testing if I got it right. But I have a pretty good batting average!
