Sounds like a plan.
Or at least a seminal idea.

So--this is where you are Yobiboob hanging with Hoyt.

A perfect place for you.

There are worse places for boatbuilders to hang.

Frosty approves of neck ties.
Well, I'm assuming, because, he lives in Tie-land.

I read that moving the engine forward slightly will help reduce squat. Opinions?

It shall do one of 3 things:-

1) Better
2) Worse
3) No change.

Without knowing what your weights and centres are and the hydrodynamic characteristics of your boat shape (i.e. an LCG chase from tank testing), I can't say which it will be.

But, typically on low L/D ratio hulls forms moving fwd helps.

Thanks. No tank testing is planned. The way the engine is mounted, it will be a simple fix to move it fore and aft to achieve best performance.

Unless you have remarkably long arms, better to move it forward some. Is 18" doable?

18" is doable but not necessarily desirable. I will save that option as a last resort.

Good call. Don't cure a "problem" without knowing if it is indeed a problem.

Leave all "what if" debates until the boat is in the water and running. We can all debate the does and dont's, but it is just theory until the boat is in the water and running. In the absence of any facts best leave as is. Then, when sea trialed it becomes a fact rather than conjecture, and you'll know what, if anything, to do

Thanks, Ad Hoc. Having built a similar boat some 40 years ago, I am not too worried as the predecessor performed well.
