Agreed the weight gain on a larger boat will be proportionally less, but Pablo's hull is not dissimilar to my own (sized to fit a standard garage if my memory of earlier posts is correct!) Also vaguely remeber it's a Yaminer 60 2- stroke -therefore probably not a new engine, so likely to be a few dead ones kicking around to nick the bits off.
Well, that was my theory, which has worked nicely for 2 25Hp lumps on my transoms so far....... Admittedly I don't mind taking engines to bits
Also agree that it will reduce swamping potential, but isn't that what the trunks are for?
Seriously though, my new boat has a cut down transom very similar to Pablo's, so I may end up revising that thought when I finish the rewire & get it out for a proper run......
Shame that budget is usually the ruling factor in these games
