    I had a bracket on my 23 hydrasports and thought about going the same route with my mako 20 as the Delaware Bay also has a close chop and depending on wind/current you often find yourself stern to the waves. Based solely on recommendations from this site, I elected to compromise and close in the notch and raise it to accommodate a 25" shaft. I was going to do the transome anyway so I figured going this route wouldn't hurt.

    This photo shows the existing notch against my new, closed in transom.

    Thanks CM ....actually mako is 20'6" ha ! I really want to avoid water coming over the top ...Lake Erie is shallow and has quite a chop and strange following waves .

    I personally wouldn't bracket a 20'. It has been done but I don't see the worth in doing it. If you did, you need a floatation tub and larger then normal trim tabs and move as much weight to the console. A 21' would be much more suited to a bracket and it has been done with pretty good success, but it's a bigger boat. Are you looking for more fishing room or to stop water coming in over the transom?

    BTW, welcome to CM. []
