Firstly if you're convinced Wolf Rock fitted the engine then call them and find out what they did. Secondly moving the engine back off the transom will give you cleaner water without lowering it.

To my untrained eye it just looks like the wrong shaft length for the boat.

I will ring rock after the christmas break and see if they fitted a magic prop that ran well at plus 61mm. Or if I have been ripped off good and proper, lol.

Motor is so shinny and new I do not want to trade it. Can you get leg extenders for this motor, and how much do they cost to buy.? Will ring tohatsu after the break to ask.

I have fitted the motor behind the transom and flush with the keel, but to power tilt the motor fully up I have to have the motor turned to go left. A pain in the bum to remember when at sea.. But ok for a test .. The motor will hit the transom if tilted up fully and with steering central. The motor is just 85mm further back than when clamped and bolted direct to the transom.

You can turn a short shaft engine into a Long, Extra Long engine, but the conversion is not cheap though, you need to order/change costly parts such as main drive shaft, shaft housing, shift rod, water pipe, all parts in L size.

Happy Boating

I found second hand parts for 285, fitted and lifted motor to highest bolt holes. Anti ventilation plate now sits 30mm below the keel line. I have also bought a stainless steel prop with less pitch to help getting on plane quicker...

Looking forward to trying it when weather improves..

I now have a kit of parts to convert a long shaft to short, for the 25 hp and 30hp tohatsu, Nissan, mariner and mercury motor all built in Japan.
