ok just so i dont get a tongue lashing from certain people on here i have

an Irwin 28' 1976

I need to know how far up to mount the motor. currently there is an existing mount pad that is approx 10x 10 maybe bigger just about the cockpit drain looks to be about 16 inches from the stern top deck. and it is dead center of the stern. just seems to me to be down very low ...but i'm a new owner and just learning. so is there a rule of thumb? too high ...sure... too low? besides the obvious.

fixed mount or a raise and lower one. my motor is a johnson 9.9 long shaft. do i want it to be about where the inboard prop would be in relation to the water ?
