I put a PT-35 (sold at Bass Pro Shops) on my old Bass Tracker 16' bass boat. It set it back 5.5" and added tilt and trim. I never had a problem. A couple things to consider would be:

1. Check with the manufacturer. It may void your warranty.

2. The additional setback may cause the need for a new longer steering cable.
