    I can only open the .jpg so maybe dimensions are provided in the .3dm

    First look is the transom is too short, most usually go at least 3/4 up the sides of the tube, some all the way to the top. Transom height is important, don't want the prop to be too deep or have the transom so high a long shaft is needed.

    You want water drain holes in that transom as well. They should be big, the water mustn't take long to drain out.
