i have a 222 ccp  with a 225 Yamaha on the back and thinking about adding a stern engine platform to gain a couple of inches lift in the stern.  and then  enclose the transom with a passage door to the platform.  Any suggestings and idea on how to close the  stern?  Any  recommendations for a Armstrong type bracket manufacturer in here Florida???

I’m hanging an Armstrong bracket on my 200 CCP.  It wasn’t cheap, but it’s well made.  It’s the 30” setback widebody flotation bracket and will help float a heavier 4 stroke.  I hope to be launching in early summer.

I closed in my transom too, but that was part of a full stringers up rebuild, and may be more than you’re planning.  There are lots of examples of rebuilds with the treansoms enclosed in the rebuilds section, both CCPs and Ospreys.

Only because I know you've already been through it, whats the transom angle on the 200 CCP? What made you go with Armstrong & were there any other options you considered?

Appreciate the feedback!

IIRC the transom angle on my CCP was between 12 and 14 degrees. That was a 222 but I'd bet the 200 is the same. That was pretty much the standard in those days. May still be for all I know. I had a B Bracket (full platform) on that hull.

Gotcha- okay, I've read that a few places but will certainly measure mine when I have the chance to confirm. That said, when deciding on these engine brackets with with the swim platforms, is there a standard setback distance? I've looked all over the internet, have searched a few posts on here too but cant seem to land on something that seems definite. Is it a preference thing? Apologies, I dont mean to hijack the thread here.

Mine was 26". Just the way it came. Worked fine.

This is spot on.  My 200 CCP was 13 degrees.  Armstrong uses 30” set back as standard.
