outboard Motor Mount
I just bought my first boat, an Oday Mariner (20''). It did not come with an outboard, but I already have a 5hp that I would like to use with it. I can put the motor right on the transom edge without using a motor mount, but shouldn''t I get a motor mount anyway? I am also incredibly nervous about drilling into my boat to put on the mount. Is this a job I could research and do myself or should I have someone experienced do it so I don''t mess up anything? Any suggestions, information, or how to would be appreciated.
