    Looks like a berk to me. There are different types and sizes of transom adapters available for Berks. Probably has to be that big to cover the handhold cover.

    Great find and nice boat! that hull has alittle different bottom than alot and the intake has already been set back a pinch thus the deep transom adapter! Once you get used to it and make the right adjustments it will run VERY respectful! JMO Mark

    What he said. I had a JOV on my Eliminator and switched to a PD. Well worth the $$$.
