Is it in an outboard motor well?? or is it a transom cutout that allows the outboard to sit lower in the water? A photo would help...so get two more posts and read the POST in my signature to learn how to post a photo using a Photobucket.com or Flickr.com account.

Can this be done without any problems? If so, have any of you done this? If so, how? BTW, taking it off isn't an option.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
