This may sound like the opposite of what most people want to do but.... I have a Monark 585 cruiser and would like to remove the 120hp volvo inboard / outdrive and build a bathing platform to take a 4 stroke outboard of about 40 hp ( for a couple of years until I can afford an inboard diesel. This would also give me loads more fishing space as the engine cover will not intrude. Has anybody tried this before, What problems were encountered and resolved? Any helpful suggestions would be gratefully received! Thanks.
