Re: Could 27 hp fit here?

The engine pictured is on what appear to be aluminum motor mounting plates. These could easily have been drilled more aft or forward. I think that it was likely that the PO did not want to remove and replace the prop shaft, or have the current one shortened to fit a larger engine.

My guess is that the larger engine wouldn't fit his budget...
