Raising transom

Hi all. I think i may need to raise my engine height on my zodiac mk2. The manual says this can be done by using a block of wood on top of the transom. This sounds a little risky. I also dont know how much i need to raise the engine by so will have to be trial and error. Has anyone tried this or is there any other method for raising the engine height. Thanks in advance.

raising transom

hi adam, depends why you want to raise the height. i raised the transom height on my bombard aerotec yesterday by 25mm, (relatively simple job).the reason for this was, water was splashing back over the transom and i couldn't stop it by adjusting the tilt of the motor and distributing weight in the boat more evenly. check the thread (engine height on a Aerotec 420) on the inflatable boats forum, plenty of detailed pics
