Evinrude E-tec 250 HO and Ranger Z520c is oh so sweet!!

Just ran my new rig down at Okeechobee for a week and I am in love with this set up. The charcoal and silver E-tec looks so awesome on the boat and she runs like a champ. Here's a picture of the new rig. Had her up to 72 on tournament day with a full load. Impressive!photo-4.JPG

NICE RIG!!!

 

72 is what I hit with mine also.  Full gas, livewells, tourney load.  I have a hydraulic jack plate too but it doesnt matter what height I run it at. Trim it all the way up, bump it down a couple times and kick back...  E-tec hit the mark!

Could you tell me what the prop shaft height is coming from the dealer.  Got my off when I put talons on.  Need to know how many inches the prop shaft is below boat pad.  Thanks

There is no set prop height, not only that but it may now be different due to the change in balance of the boat because the Talons were added. An initial starting point could be around 3-3/4" to 4", but it would  be trial and error due to the change in the boat's center of bouyancy.

 

Is it possible to see the marks from the mounting bolts and washers on the motor and the imprint of the transom brackets on the hull to determine where the motor was originally mounted?
