    Default help

    lets see how good you guys are out there. Could you tell me what used to be bolted on the back of this boat just by the size and shape of the hole and the amount of bolts??? i just picked this up with no motor and no outdrive for 200 bucks. I'm assuming its probably a jet drive of some sort. I'm new to boats. the front motor mounts are hydraulic and can raise up about 3 or 4 inches. what is that used for trim of some sort? any help would be very much appreciated. THANKS!!

    the outdrive is bolted to the motor and there is a big rubber boot that goes around it and then goes to the transom. Trim is done by lifting the front of the motor. The only transom shield (beside a OMC stringer drive) that will cover the hole is a Volvo 290 and even then you may need to fill in some areas. It all depends on how well the original hole was cut.

    I did the swap to a 1970 Monza I just finished.

    The Stinger was very good. But you don't want a blower motor in front of it.
