    Default Approximate "ideal" engine location

    I'm sure this has prolly been covered dozens of times, but is there a good starting point to engine location?? And I'm sure there are many variables. But this is a 1976 HEAVY 19' daytona that has the pump set back, will be a weekend lake,race boat. 2 seater with approximately 1000 hp. We do plan on moving the engine forward but not sure how far. Thank's for any input.

    Default 19 Daytona

    With a 1000 hp w/ and set back pump I would start at 26 to 28 inches from the transom to the rear motor plate. Has the bottom of this boat been done?

    Yes it has been done by us, we "copied" a TPR stealth as close as we could. Thanks for the info.

    Default 520# engine location?

    Greg, can you make a recommendation for a 520# 19 Daytona (nothing in it when weighted)? I know I'm limited to space, (running a back bench seat, for small kids) at 700hp, pump set back, and a keel pad?
    Thanks in advance, be safe. schick
