5.5 Delta transom

Has the transom been cut to suit engine? Or is this normal?

I don't remember the radius at the top of the cutout being so big,I thought it was a bit sharper.

It is deep like that though.

It was the different radius on each side that grabbed my attention, made me wonder was the transom supposed to be straight across!
Nothing to worry about then?

I think the depth is right it's just the top of cutout that doesn't look right.

There's a picture in the thread below showing depth of cutout, not the best but it does show the sharp radius at the top.

Were are the lower engine mounting bolts?

The Delta has a deep V hull so a long shaft engine sit quite low on the hull and can be swamped by a stern wave if you stop quick in a straight line. The solution is don't stop quickly or reverse into waves, or fit a skirt to the inside of the transom. Delta did a GRP moulding for this.
