Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

We have, in the past, fabricated a temporary outboard mount in order to get a boat home where it could be more easily worked on. This might be an option for you even if only to get the boat home... for that matter a couple of hundred bucks for a good mount, 4 holes and a backing plate and you're on your way. It can be removed and the holes filled and faired post repairs.

It could also be something as simple as a couple of 2x6s clamped to a swim ladder...
