Used my long transom with my short shaft engine for some time, but after chopp down the performance difference made all the boating fun at any sea condition.
You need to place a mate up front when checking leg height/water flow for cav plate/boat to remain paralell to water surface. If you are a very heavy guy, place a sumo fighter as a figurehead...
