    You should "watch out" that no one gets it before you do.[]

      Weight distribution has been an issue for people. A flotation bracket helps at rest, but then is even heavier when on plane. With a single, you may be ok but pay attention to running attitude. Pharmnyc has a thread on here about his saga trying to get his to run right.

        Check out Snappergrapper's thread as he did it with great success, except for the fact he liked it so much it made him buy a new motor. []

                I love mine. The added space and dry feet really out way the little offset weight when running. I have to use a little tab. If you need specific answers send me a text. 386-451-ten53.

                  wouldn't a 91' model be a 221 model not a 224? I could be wrong

                    Pics would help as it could be a few different models, perhaps the year is wrong, but it can't be a '91 224.

                    As for thoughts on the boat, all depends on the work and the bracket. There have been successful jobs and unsuccessful. Twins have never seemed to work; too much weight too far back.

                        the 221 I like a little better but was only few differences, and think it depends if the original owner got the cpak console and recessed tabs?
