Thank you for that,i made my bracket a bit smaller than that,i hope i dont regret it. Mikeys boat sits real nice in the water, im afraid of being a little ass heavy.Well remains to be seen,i assume the bracket is 30" im curious is the motor height 2.5 inches higher and did it work out good??

It is a 2.5” rise and it runs well mike. I am a little surprised it is not faster though. Runs 55 I believe. I saw another 21 with a 300 Yamaha that did 60. But the hull runs fine with the bracket.

I should explain the last 3 pics. The very last is a 21 that two men took out the Jupiter inlet on a bad day. They hit the breaker line in the wrong place and head on. Bow went straight up and boat went over backwards. Both were lost unfortunately.

The other two are of a car that rear ended the boat while turning into the ramp. Bracket had a scratch on it. Car not so lucky

l thought that was the boat before you got it . I have an old evinrude 175 that runs about 30 ish good enough for me right now at least until i recover from this bracket im 4500 in so far but i dont have to tell you. My pics are in my gallery if you want to critique me,it would be much appreciated.
