The Watkins 25 was 'designed' for a 9 horse inboard Diesel. The option was for an o/b. The backing plate is only added if the option is chosen. 4 stroke version is 25lbs heavier than my 2 cycle...not a big deal on my boat...even less of a problem on a 30' boat. Also I'm not pushing 2 cycle here just giving an example of real life that works not theory or opinion.
