Short shaft

Just to test my sib out,was thinking of using my 3.3 mariner o/b,yes i know i won t be planning and doing amazing speeds,,,,,,just wanna test her for water tightness when done,and a possiblely a little trip to my very close inshore mark,,,,,,,,,,,,its short shaft ,what ya reckon,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,will it do?here's the transom,not in this state now as previously shown just more appropriate pick to show the depth of the transom,looking at it ,think it may fit it?remember i will be having a lighter made floor as well

It'll move, that's about it. We have 5hp on a 2.3m dinghy, that's fun.

It looks like a short shaft transom, but hard to tell. How deep is it?

I reckon your 3.3 will push it-slowly. I'd have to be pretty confident of the conditions before I'd fish with 3.3hp on there though.

What's the max it's rated to mate?It may be easier finding a 20hp if it's rated for it.

There's a 9.9 for sale in the small ads mate. If it's good it'd do you nicely.
