Default Could it work????

I want something that looks realistic. Here is this little out board that you just slap an engine on. I want to know if I could just hack off where the engine would mount and extend the bracket off the back a little and put a u-jount there and make it an inboard/outboard like a real boat???

The red is what would get hacked off and green points where the u-joint would be and it would enter the hull

I would also get rid of the bar where it mounts to the boat and just a bolt on each side

Looks like you'll need some machine capability to reverse the drive to come from the other side. It appears to be a good exercise in futility. By the way. Our boats are "REAL" boats, just a smaller size. Is my tournament ski boat not a real boat because it's not as large as the Queen Mary?

The drive systems on these boats are not realistic looking to me. So this setup would look more realistic.

Realistic is relative. The drive on our boats is realistic for our boats. There are to many losses in the stern drive you want to make and we don't have to lift the lower unit to operate in shallow water. If your desire is to build a scale boat, then proceed. If you want a boat for competition then KISS!

This boat is only 24inches long so no compition there. I might just do this drive setup for fun.

You did another posting on this outboard in here. I've never seen a real OB motor with 2 belts and a jackshaft in between. That is a poor setup anyway, not very efficient either. The belt going to the prop shaft would toss a lot of water around and create a lot of turbulence before reaching the prop.
