I have a 16' Hewescraft Sea Runner with a 35 hp prop and would like to put a 50 hp jet on it to cruise the Deska, Little Su, etc...and would like to be able to re-install the lower unit with the prop to cruise Lk Louise/Skilak/PWS.
What do I have to do to the boat/transom to be able to switch between a jet/prop to run it in salt or lakes? Do I just simply need to remove the jet and install the prop and head out? Seems like the prop wouldn't be down in the water enough with a short shaft. Do I need some sort of manual or hydraulic lift?
Thanks for the insight,
