Funny you should mention that.......Here I am!

I have a CCW 150 mounted on a 6.2m Vipermax. 11/4" - 11/2" from the center line to port side will be about spot on.

If he wants to sell the 150, let me know?

Thanks to everyone for their help and Hightower for the specialist advice. Will move it in the next few days and let you know if it works. I have a few different props, so might play around with those just to see if it makes any difference. Cheers again!

Ask him if it makes a difference when trimming it out - I think he'll find that with a bit of trim the problem will disappear!
