Attachment; Transom Angle Adjustment - Honda BF4A Owner's Manual

If the outboard motor is installed too
low, the boat will squat and be hard to
plane, and the outboard motor will
spray water that may enter the boat. It
will tend to bounce, and high-speed
stability will be reduced.
If the outboard motor is installed too
high, that will cause propeller
ventilation.
Optimum installation height varies
with boat type and bottom shape.
Contact the boat manufacturer for any
special recommendations that are
unique to a specific model of boat.
If the transom needs to be modified to
accommodate the outboard motor,
contact the boat manufacturer and
follow their recommendations for
corrective action.

Attach a rope from the boat to the
hole in the stern bracket. This will

outboard motor.

ADJUSTMENT
