If that is indeed the case, what are the implications? I'm enclosing a few pictures of the transom taken during the prepurchase survey in France (surveyor didn't bring out the subject opening).
As you can see from the topside picture of the splashwell, The engine mounting bolts are seen evenly spaced out from the inside of the transom just below the steering system.
