oh and as for are the motors mounted correctly, are you serious??? If you're going to make a statement like that you better give me an example of what you think is wrong otherwise it just looks like sour grapes.

I'm not trying to be a d!ck I'm just saying lets be constructive. Now if you honestly see something I need to be aware of I'd be MORE than glad to hear about it

No, the center engine was gone when I got my boat, ran it for a year and then sold the 250s and used the money from them toward the new 300s.

Originally I was going to put a new 300 in the center because the boat is all set up for tripples, but after talking to jay I decided to skip the center engine. Jay could have made plenty of money off of me by selling me that center engine, but he knew it would be nothing but a bunch of problems and advised against it. I have to respect that.

If you are serious about putting a center engine on your boat later there are things that should be done while the boat is being built, like reinforcing the transom, the small pod in the tunnel and a few other things.

I don't see anything wrong with the engine placement, but I'm not the guy that designed your boat. Even the smallest mistep in that area can be a disaster for water pressure, gearcase life, steering, ect. You can call Jay and talk to him about it, If there is something wrong he will tell you. I will try to find some picks of the stuff on my boat that was put there for the center engine.

See the bracket in the top left corner of the pic? the bolts for the center engine run through that, you will probably need them for a center engine.

Throttles and trim switch, you will also need the switch plate that has a place for the third key.
