Neat idea, hard to predict how usage over time will hold up. Could be a lot of weight and strain on those welds. I'm imagining that physically installing the outboard in the mount will be an exercise to some degree, ie retrieving it, leaning over the transom, tightening fasteners, etc.

Gasoline in a lazerete is a no no.

Giving up a lazerete to accommodate the increased space gained by removing the main engine is confusing.
