I did the best I could with the pics. Not sure which part of the hull should line up with the cavitation plate. The lowest part of the hull in the center of the boat (Bottom of Hull 1 pic) is about 2-1/2" below the cav plate (Hull 1 to Cav Plate pic). The larger/flatter part of the hull is off to the side about 8" (Hull 2 to Cav Plate pic) and best I can tell is about 3/4" below the cav plate (Hull 2 to Cav Plate pic). Does it look like there's room to lower my motor without developing too much drag?
The pic's are fine, as far as where to put the straight edge it would be the very center of the pad. However how much set back is built into the hull?(that's the distance from where the motor is mounted to the pad) Ruel of thumb is for every 1" of set back you come up 1/2". So if you have 4" set back the motor goes up 2". That's called a starting point. Looks like from the pic's you may have to much height. Do the formula with set back included you might have to go down 1/2-1".
