I think you will be ok with a single big engine on the back provided you amended your transom to deal with it. With regards to the shape of the hull: we run similar power on a similar size boat with a 'flattened back end' without any problem (although I propped her very 'conservatively') . I am not sure if my/our hull can be compared with an atlantic hull but still, it looks like a heavy all weather type of boat so fair chance she can handle!

I run a 225hp on the back. Be carefull of the weight as you may require some type of ballast up front to compensate or she will become ver light at the front heading into swell/chop

I must note the bit handles extremely well with a single

Probably worth skipping to 2min 30s or 3min to be fair

thanks Ben! Does look pretty fine to me!
After a little delay due to being very busy, we're almost done with the hull now.
The hull should be ready by next jan. Next summer we will be able to try it in the water.
Question: Could threre be a possibility that you make a picture of the engine from the behind, while being onthe trailer with the engine trimmed down? I'm very curious of the engine height you have. Thankx in advance!
Gr. W.
