Cool

Try and do lots of Sikaflexing at the same time-it goes off quite fast in the tubes. OH, and once it's dried, it really doesn't come off. Clean it off anything you need to when it's wet, and wear 2 pairs of vinyl gloves while you use the sika. It's easier to pull a pair off and carry on than to keep stopping

It's very useful for bonding down consoles/seats etc as well-use decent 316 stainless screws to pull the console onto a bed of Sikaflex. That is, unless you want to glass them in.

If it's any help, my last rebuild thread is here:-

I've had a coupe of glasses of wine so I'm going to keep this high level - the plate above transom "issue" may not be an issue if you have a raked transom... as the rake will park the Business end of the leg way outboard of the transom.

Did that make sense?

and can you get a pic of it looking along the bottom of the hull to give the "advice committee" a better feel for what your situation is?

To give some the photo some perspective get a ruler or a length of wood held against the keel and projecting beyond the transom to the engine and lets see where it meets the gearbox....

don't worry. It's beer tonight so sense will prevail.

If you measure the height of the anti cavitation (ventilation) plate above the transom, the relative height of the two may be offset by the distance of the plate behind the transom as the water will rise as the hull passes the water in an Einsteinian relativity sort of way.

orrite ye huv a twin engine hull. It's set up fur twins. Ye neeeeed un autre moteur de 135 cheveux.

Normal service will resume shortly. ...

Yip.

Ok nothing methanol based tonight so third time lucky....

Bottom line is how high relative to the bottom of the hull is your anti cavitation plate?

As you motor along the hull essentially creates a "hollow of air" behind it. The water previously under the hull rises to fill this gap and so the further back from the transom you get the further up it has got, so if your engine sits further back (either by trimming it up or use of a jack plate) the higher you can have the cav plate.

Now we talking...
In another words even if my shaft is bit shorter then the transom at the mounting place I could compensate this by moving engine further back...makes sense. But I don't think you can compensate 7 inch.
Good to know for the future, but know I'm going twin and looking for twins or single to match.found one in Germany , have spoken to the seller he claims it was driven without oil for some time.3 cylinders have no compression. Would cost me 1225 delivered. Is it worth it?
