    Questions About Surface Drive Props

    would it be possible to put a surface drive prop on a standard bass boat outboard? would i have to raise the motor out of the water some? if i did raise it out of the water would the water pump still work or need to be modified/changed? if these are not possible can i use a smaller engine to run the prop say up to 25hp horizontal shaft honda? could i mount it over the stern of the boat at a slight angle or do i have to cut a hole in the stern and run it strait out the back?:confused:
