So I made a big mistake in my new purchase. I bought a 14, 6' wide little "mini flats boat". It came with a 15 hp Nissan and I wanted to put my 25 merc on it. I did not pay attention that the transom was a tall one and the Nissan was a long shaft. SO should I just cut down a spot on the transom or what??? Keep in mind the project will be to put a deck on this boat so it will be a lot more weight soon.
