My recommendation would be to go with the full height transom ..... I have experienced both on several makes and when you have two fat boys kitting up towards the stern, you will be grateful for the extra transom height - otherwise I think you find you are regularly getting swamped as waves "lap" over ........ it keeps the engine nicely out of the water at standstill as well
........... oh the Opti 90/115 is available in 25"
