 Thanks Scott, yes I realize they aren't small, which is why I want the drop down pole set up to only use once out deep going slow

Transom mounts

 Tim (user here on FW) has a 295 with a 2kw 38 in a transom mount.  He can give you details.

Ben Punch at Fibrelite Boats did Tim's transom fairing block and is experienced with these sorts of installations.
