(Only seams much more different, cause original console front doesn´t touch the ground.)

More weight to the front she cuts waves smoother, rides smoother, more weight to the transom she goes faster, but some harder on choppy surface. You have to figure out wich kind of ride you prefer.
Engine is 125 kg, Mariner 50 hp, 2 stroke. Will have 2 sometimes 3 onboard.

Hi Chris, with that size of your fuel tank, and your Honda BF 50 consumption you´ll make round Ireland without any refill......very nice pic!

@ Firefly

Max allowed engine weight on SR4 transom is approx 100 kilograms. Are you sure about the 125 kg weight of your 50 HP 2 stroke Mariner? Should´nt that be arround 100 kilograms?

With your console and 2-3 persons she´ll be well balanced.
