  • Was my 171 transom raised?

    Im repowering and assumed I had the factory 20 transom but just found out that may not be the case. Im far away from my boat and am hoping someone can look at this pic and make and tell me if it has been raised to 25.

    I googled a pic of another 1988 171 and that transom looks lower than mine.

    And no, I dont have the Yamaha anymore and didnt check the serial ##129324;

    Thanks in advance

    It looks like a factory transom to me.

        I'm not sure if it's raised or factory but it looks like a 25 inch transom from that pic.

            Thanks for the responses. It is a 25 transom, the shop confirmed.

            I dont see a factory option listed for that, only see a 20 for 1988 171 Angler so if somebody raised it they did a damn good job of making it look original.

            So now the shop has to send back the 20 DF 140 and swap it for a 25.

            Waiting to hear on that.

                          Well now I feel really dumb.

                          I just looked at DTMackeys sticky post with 1988 specs and the 171 was offered with 20 or 25 transom.

                          Duh.....
