Partial deckover. Running a rotax 503 dual carbs, new motor. Thanks though. Would that be to much?

not to much power, usually not enough. Don't know where you are running, but be careful of deep water with the low transom unless you are decking it over in the back :thumbleft: looking good :salute:

What rivers do you have to run out that way? I've been in the Koch plant many times and have driven around a bit during time off and have t found any waterways. Let me know when you finish her up and we can get together and ride.

Is your plan to put a modified version of splash well inside the transom?

I share Geralds concern

Different strokes for different folks, I've just never seen the motor stand welded to the stringers. Good Luck :rebel:
