Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
My boat came with a heavy-duty Garelick Eez-in outboard motor bracket that was mounted to a custom-made wooden base on the transom. Unfortunately, the Garelick bracket didn't put any of the long-shaft outboards I tried low enough in the water, and couldn't be adjusted further. I sold the Garelick and devised this mount from two aluminum L-shaped pieces and two square sheets, a surplus wooden bracket, and some stainless bolts and screws. I had to cut the inner edge of the square aluminum pieces at an angle so that the motor sat lower in the water.
