Unfortunately yes..

But 3.2hours, and 4 seasons of warranty means it was too good to miss

Yup it is. Having the shorter transom for an L shaft just results in more water coming over

I think you may find that transom is for a long shaft engine, not an extra long shaft engine, I looked into that size of Vipermax when
I was down picking my rib up from Mike Whitham and asked all about the 6.2m and a 6.5m Vipermax.
