I glassed over the outboard well in the lazarette (hole for motor) - outboard blocks had been installed on the transom so my Yamaha 9.9 hangs off stern. much better set-up but requires an extra long shaft to keep prop in water. The hole used to be 10" x 14", and there was an extra bulkhead in lazarette to support motor. Have no idea what kind of outboard was used in well, but from what I've seen in other Stoltz was likely an 8hp two stroke regular shaft. I recommend my set-up: the hole acted like a drough and created drag. Seemed like a pain to pull motor up through well to sail without dragging prop and shaft through water. Hope this helps!
