The brackets can be mounted two different ways which will either increase or decrease clearance. I have my brackets mounted in the tall position, but the prop still doesn't clear the metal cross bar. There may be a taller bracket but I haven't checked into it. The way the boat sits on the bunks I would be too far forward on the lift if the prop was in front of the cross bar.
Being on the water is best, but when I'm not on the water I'm on TT.
