10" is a hell of a lot of setback on a 16' semi v boat.
did you have a point? if so, I think you failed to make it. 10" is not "a hell of a lot", it is 10" and it is the distance back from the transom that will give you the best shallow running capabilities.
if you want to run shallow, go with 10" setback. with only a 4-6" setback , you are only giving your motor the ability to run a few inches shallower, and you will not be happy with this slight increase when you need to get into skinny water.
