New member here, hoping some of the old hands can cast an eye.
I have very recently bought an old Avon R3-40. I have a Mariner 6HP Long Shaft (from my other, larger boat). So, unsurprisingly my query is about the height of the transom.
I have had a bit of a nose about prior to posting, and have read the informative link below.
Also I have had a look at the very specific thread below, which seems to feature an Avon similar to mine. Which shows a very effective raising of the the transom by phillnjack.
I have also attached images of my boat, with a makeshift set up and from what I can very roughly judge, my transom is more or less the same height currently, as shown in the modified transom link of phillnjack's above.
I would be most grateful if the experienced members of the forum could have a look at the images below and give me their thoughts on the if the current height of my transom, is fit for purpose?
All help much appreciated.
