Re: Mounting engine; not on transom
Sorry for the oversized pics, not used to the sizing needed for the new forum here... used to a couple of other forums that automatically resize for posts...
Second pic was added to show the plate the motor mount drops over and how it can be placed. Our transom was like yours, no way to 'hang' a second motor beside the first. The rope you see in the first pic is simply added as a 'support sling' for when we are traveling at faster speeds out on the water or over rough water. It helps absorb some of the shocks and we just tie it off to a cleat inside the boat. Done to just take some pressure off of the transom and hopefully extend the life of the mount. We have used it for 5 years or so now without problem.
