My Gheenoe 154 has a 2 1/2” transom riser. I think it could be a bit higher. I’d appreciate it if anyone with knowledge of how high I can raise my engine could look at the photo and give me their opinion.

Raise it 1/4” at a time until it blows out, then drop it back down 1/4” and there ya go!

Shim it and clamp it. Don’t run but just a short run. Check clamps and run again. I have told many people not to run their motors only clamped on, but for tuning it is acceptable as long as you are mindful and smart about it. Take a scrap 2x4 and cut 1/4” shims with a table saw then go to the water. I have done this more times than I care to remember!
