Cougar 21 setup - Transom

Hello everyone...

I have a Cougar 21, 22 transom and we have a Mercury 225 Optiamx XL (25" shaft) that needs a home.

The boat will be used for complete recreational purposes and water-skiing. I understand my options are as follows:

1) Change shaft length - Advised best option

2) Mount on the lowest hole + jack plate to have between a c3-4 inch raise - Will increase stress on transom and increasing the height of the engine block.

3) Build up the existing transom Expensive and still wont overcome the lifting the height of the engine block.

I know 'Lars' had a P21 with a with 225 XL wondered if he encountered any problems. I appreciate the best option would be to change the shaft, but bearing in mind this is for a recreational use does anyone have any thoughts of running the Cougar with a jack plate should I be concerned about the transom??

If changing the shaft length is the only realistic option, does anyone have a 20" shaft for sale?? I assume I need a mid-section and bottom box.

Thanks in advance.
