Hey, SoulVoyage, i've thought about this, but haven't come up with a way to do it yet...

rather than re-invent the wheel, can you give me (us) some advice and/or pix on how you did it?

i have a 1972 Morgan 30/2, Yanmar inboard (so no O/B bracket on the stern), with an 8 foot Caribe RIB and a 15 HP Yam 2 stroke O/B

thanx!

(i tried to PM you, but apparently i have to have 5 posts before i can PM anybody. i thought it was easier to do this than to make up 5 "junk" posts! )
