I just realized I didn't ever load up pictures of the entire boat. Here are a couple, plus I'll post some more once I get the Talon mounted.

Heh Guys hope everyone is having a great summer. Here is the latest pic of my PH18 - new Talon 12' shallow water anchor now mounted along with replacing the cable drive TM with a new Minn Kota Riptide Ultrex, and some other finishing touches I didn't have tome for last year.

Question, and likely for the designer if he gets a chance... I assume I am about 1 - 2" sitting low int he water at transom due to the extra 70 lbs frm the talon and the fact I was already a little low due to jack plate etc? She cruises beautifully at about 20 - 22 knots, and obviously is a little heavier than the wood models with less complex hatches / bulkheads etc.

My question is - I may have blown my motor this past week, and if I want to go an Evinrude G2, i am going to be adding yet another 140 pounds to the jack plate 10" aft of transom. What will this do to the waterline at the scupper ? (seen forward of the Maui Jim logo) Ho much more will she "sink" ? I will not ask about performance because I obviously want to scream down the lake when it is glass calm at 07:00 ... and the cruising with family is a given at 20 knots....
