Is that range black you've put over the brass and iron on the Kingdom Brunel 150?

Thanks Kernow,

I think I will have to see if I can get someone I know who lives where the boat is to measure it for me, as I didn't know there were so many variations in transom shape...I think this will be the safest bet.

Regards

Johnny

I've had someone measure it for me...

And the result is 20 1/2". I think that the access to the boat wasn't too easy, so I expect it is actually 21". I think this sounds right.

Thanks for all the assistance given.

Unless the transom has been cut down, a ribtec 5.85 would be a long shaft ofcoarse.

Some pics of my various Ribtec's transoms;

1st pic is the original un-touched transom with an extra long shaft Merc 135
2nd pic is the bare transom slightly cut down to take twin 75hp Mercs
3rd pic is the same transom with an extra long shaft 150 Merc 135
4th pic is my current boat with original height transom fitted with long shaft twin Yamaha 60's
5th pic is the first boat from a different angle.

Might be going to my boat tomorrow so can measure if needed.
