    Hey Andy-

    With the bracket, you will probably be better off than with a standard transom. Are you able to move weight forward in the boat without doing any major modifications?

      She's gonn'a weigh 580lbs. The new Bomb in 2 stroke weighs 517lbs in a 20in shaft. Your not that far off. I don't belive there will be a problem at all.

                I see 23s with twin OMC and Yammie v4s all the time, that = about 800 Lbs. A single 4 stroke should be a piece of cake.

                  Andy,

                  I repowered my 224, going from an Evinrude 225hp to a Yamaha F225 that weighed in at 580lbs. My float line didn't change.

                  What I did to offset the added weight was to move my two group 27 batteries from the storage boxes in back to the console.

                  You do need a 25" shaft regardless of the engine you pick. With a 17M SWS prop I cruise at 31 MPH at 4,000 RPM. Max speed at WOT with a full load (4 pax, 70 gal fuel) is 41 MPH.
