    Default flat engine placement

    i am putting a 76 hondo t deck flat back together,i have been looking t a lot of flat bottom pictures and noticed a lot of different engine placement.i put the engine in it today and it is more forward than a lot i have seen.i am wondering how this will effect the handeling of the boat.it has 1.12 gears in the v drive,it has a two blade prop eleven and three eights with 15 deg pitch.the engine is a 396 that should be right around 400 hp.i am hoping for 70 mph.what do you guys think?

    Leave the engine where it is. You could move it back 6 inches and with that HP and that prop, it would not make any difference.
    I don't know what I don't know because I forgot !!!
