The only advantage to solid mounts aside form cost is that they are less likely to break in a knockdown or rollover situation. There are numerous accounts of boats being "kerwacked" by big seas only to come upright without a mast...and the engine knocked off its mounts and unable to drive the boat.

If you are not planning on playing in the Southern Ocean, then you want to investigate getting the anti-vibration mounts.
