Good call on the running lights, Brian - I just noticed that.  As for headroom, I built the shop after I read your FAQ thread on the Glacier Boats forum :-)   13' - 6"  ceiling and 10x12 door.

Got company for the weekend, so the big day is tomorrow.

My only second thought is the VHF placement, as the channel selection knob is close to my knee and I have to be careful not to bump it off of 16.  I've thought of upgrading the radio to one with AIS (and  a right-knob front).

 Finally made it out to test boat. Rather shocked when the AIS alarm went off on Garmin 740S gps and pleased to see new vhf (standard horizon GX2150W, best buy for a ais unit and recommended to me by a commercial buddy, basically $315 off eBay). Kinda strange is I don't see any display on vhf screen so something to sort there. Had a oil leak on o/b but put off to oil spilled during the teardown and seemed to be gone by the time we put back into ramp 50m later??? Going to retighten base gaskets but have bad feeling might have to pull powerhead. That upgrade to a new o/b is starting to look better all the time. B & B

The boat will stick up pretty high when you crank it onto the trailer got the ceiling and door height that you need?  When I did it, I did it outside.  The jig slid forward while the boat pulled onto the trailer and I had to put a wood block between it and the aft cross member on the trailer to keep it from smashing the little running lights that were back there.

Exact same situation with my Widebody.  I don't have any issue tilting up my motor.

When I built the transom for my standard I anticipated having the main engine 10" offset to accommodate a kicker.  I have since had a change in heart and would like to mount the main on the centerline and forgo the kicker.  To do this, I'll need to cut a 1 3/8" notch in the transom so the engine will sit at the proper height.

However, in looking at the first book, Renn says to add a 1 inch section to the bottom of the 2x8 to allow for the engine to be fully tilted up without hitting the bottom of the drywell.  Too late for me to do that now....

I know that others on here have notched their transoms, likely for the same situation that I find myself in.  Should I have reason to worry about tilt issues if I cut the notch and not worry about lowering the bottom of the drywell?
