I'd agree that the solid engine mounts are probably not such a good idea. They will transmit all the vibration to the rest of the boat, and that's probably not too good for the rest of the boat.

Also, the excess noise and vibration caused by the solid engine mounts are going to be a stressor on anyone working/living on the boat while the engine is being run... and that can cause mental fatigue and other problems, which can probably be avoided or reduced by using vibration isolating engine mounts.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
