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

"Looks great Mosby ! I spoke to you about this setup years ago... great to hear your happy. Your boat looks like it came out of the factory that way. I converted mine to a bracket in 1989 and never regretted it also with amazing results. I know you…"

"Give us an update on your progress and fuel tank replacement.  A shame I know to spend all that time and money on all your upgrades only to have an issue with the fuel tank.  Been there, done that."

"It drains out the back thru PVC pipe to cheap rubber flapper type scuppers from West Marine.  I raised the deck 2" which is the minimum; 3" would be better.  If 2 people stand in the corner at the transom they'll get their…"

"Hi  My suggestion is to put the new Yamaha 300 Hp 4.2 ltr or the 350 Hp 5.3 ltr .  I run the Yamaha 350 Hp V-8 on mine with a 25" leg and it runs great. Rick"

"I would stay with 25 inch shaft outboards single or dual. If you go to 30" Then the dive platform would be to high above the water and you wont get the floation lift if the bracket is mounted up high above the bottom of hull for…"

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 225 or 250 4 stroke or maybe a 225 2 stroke.  Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.  Thanks.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.
