Height is easy (to talk about): You literally mount the outboard higher on the transom.

Trim: There should be some arrangement on the bracket that will stop the motor from flopping all the way down (I'm assuming you have a smaller, non-power-tilt/trim motor.) Either a spring loaded pin that slips into a series of holes, or a bar that you move to block the motor in a trimmed out condition.

When the 40hp was still in the R&d stage , many moons ago, the R.N.L.I. designed and fitted a spray plate to go between the gear housing and the leg. I went down to the R.N.L.I. and we spent a couple of hours testing the plate in rough and choppy waters, and I was getting paid for it as well. The MOD worked fine, and that is why if you have an ex R.N.L.I. 40hp that plate is on it.

I seem to recall a couple of others on here that have done similar things to what Al described, though as I recall, the "plate" would be some sort of deflector mounted on the transom to the rear part of the tubes.

Spotted this on a nearly new Aerotech recently, looked quite neat. Anyone had any experience with one or know if this is a Bombard accessory?

jyasaki it is an actuall plate , about if I remember corectly (been retired for three years)5mm thick, the bottom of the leg was machined to take the plate it made a hell of a differance to the water coming inside the boat.

Yeah, Al; I understood that (though I appreciate the clarification.)

The thing I was referring to was more of a spray "shroud", triangular (I assume) running from the transom next to the motor, to the transom at the tubes, and back along the tubes. And ditto on the other side.

In retrospect, that may have been on a different forum (it was a while ago.)
