Sounds like you have made up your mind... Let's see some pics in/out of the water!

FYI, I did this based off what GW told me. Basically, in 2001 they moved the scuppers up 1.5" on all hulls to accommodate the heavier 4 strokes outboards,
so I did as well on my boat...Screenshot_20210307-203643.png

With the scuppers moved up, how is the deck draining? good enough?

It's still pretty cold here in NY and no docks are in yet, so I haven't tried the boat out yet...

As long as they are lower than the cockpit deck, you should be fine. Looks great....

I had a ‘95 with twin 200 HPDIs and had no issues. Very fast on plane and topped out at 53mph. Thought the motors were the perfect match for the hull.

Just put the boat in yesterday! As promised, here is a pic of the finished boat. Note the new height of the scupper - drains perfectly.

Looks good. She’s gonna move with twin 200’s. I like that there is one scupper versus two on each side.
