Thread: Stand-off Box

  1. #1
    Can anyone tell me what a standoff box (between the engine and the drive) is for, and how it works?

    Not enough information!
    What drive do you have?
    There are drive systems that use a trans between the engine and drive for F-N-R. That's what it sounds like your talking about with having to guess what your working with.

    A standoff box mounts the drive (and pivot point) farther back from the transom to give positive trim more leverage to carry the nose.
    Less positive trim needed = more forward thrust
    However, it also makes your x-dimension you'll probably need to raise the engine or put a shorty on to maximize the benefits.
