Outboard on a Bracket

I'm going to put a bracket with an outboard on my 233.  What length shaft are you guys using on your outboards?  Should I use a 25" shaft or go with a 30" shaft.  I'm also debating between a Yamaha…Continue

233 Windshield

I have a 233 windshield, free to a good home.  It has forward vents in the side glass (one had broken and replaced with plexiglass) and no vents in the front windshield.  Thought I was going to use it for a 233 project, but that never happened.  Located near Deltaville, VA, one hr east of Richmond.  Also have a home built fiberglass/foam motor cover (no wood) also free to a good home.See More

More about your 233
233 Cuddy purchased in Tampa, FL in 1984. Total refit from hull up in 1985-86. Converted to center console (forgive me) in 2003. Added nice T top with full electronics including radar and chart plotter. Use mostly in the Chesapeake Bay stripper fishing.

Hey Mosby! Thx for the compliment! My boats a 72, I think the curved side was 60's through 72, but not sure? I like that better than the newer models. Your boat looks great!

I just bought a 77 center console that was converted to an out board. It has an Armstrong bracket and a 225 Honda. The owner didn't give me much info. Does anyone know what size the gas tank is that is ahead of the center console. The fuel gauge isn't working yet. It also has a second tank where the old I/O was.
