Also here is how the interior came out. Bought a sewing machine and taught myself. After a couple try's it came out well!!!

Beautiful Job Jesse!!!!!!!!!!
Well done. I used to own of my own sewing machine and did a lot of my own upholstery. It's not an easy trade to learn and it takes lots of patience so congrats on your new skill.

Hey Jesse,
I have converted mine to trips.  It looks pretty awesome.  I had a custome floatation bracket made for it and had the transome completely rebuilt and reinforced to hold triple 350 4cycle Mercs.  I've yet to get the Mercs.  Saving up the $$$.
I had to rebuild the transome due to the stock brackets had started to cut into the transome and the transome started to rot.  As far as needing to reinforce I would.  The average 250 outboard weighs 700-800 lbs plus the and extra bracket or new bracket is another 100-200 lbs.  then you have to figure the added stress of the extra power.
Good luck and have fun with your project.
