yea, it is a wavechopper 30 but i didnt get it from offshore electrics... i got it for $40 shipped direct from the actual manufacturer in china. the hull is really nice, hand laid, and the back has double the fiberglass so that you can mount a o/b. i love this hull.

yea, but i had to modify the hi jack because the rod in the front of the engine wouldnt fit, so i mounted the engine onto the plate.. i had to drill and tap it for screws, but i still recommend the hi jack to any o/b user, its really light, and is very adjustable. its more suitable for the k&b 3.5..

You can order the Hi-Jack mounts direct from Victor Gorecki at [email protected] Believe he has them on ebay every now and then at $45 or so for the 3.5 mount. His 7.5 mount is $65. Don't quote me on the price.

As for another option for a mount, might want to look at [link=http://www.seismicracing.com/comersus/store/comersus_listCategoriesAndProducts.asp?idCategory= 103]Seismic Racing Mounts[/link] Even though they don't look as nice as the Hi-Jacks, the Seismic mount has both up/down and in/out adjustment screws. This gives more control of how the motor is angled.

I'm certain that both Vic and Seismic would make a mount for either the OS or TT motors. Buyer needs to tell them what the mount will be used with. Both are built with K&B specs in mind.
