The 44 is really a little too much power especially if you don't have engine driven refrigeration, why the 46? There is room in back of my engine for another 1.5" but it would be getting crammed to add any other PTO's etc.. All that was done was drop the rear mounts which involved cutting and re-welding them plus a new waterlift muffler. The stringers are solid fiberglass and holes were drilled to get nuts on the back side of the mounts. There is metal embedded under there too but I prefer nuts...

You also might consider a Beta. If I were re-powering today it would be one of the top contenders. Stanley at Beta is about as good as it gets with customer support and working out the "fit"..
