There are different glues for different materials. Hypalon rafts take tolulene, pvc boats take MEK- methyl ethyl ketone. When you mentioned the nubs on the stern I wondered which kind of raft it is. If it has a transom as opposed to a round end, or if it has a tube on the stern .The NRS river company is a good resource for glues and advice. If in fact you have a tube at the stern, they make a mount that might work for you. We did this at our raft company. There is a rear seat mount for rafts that is u shaped that goes over the tube, and straps in place, then the tube is inflated. We welded a plate on the back and removed the seat, bingo motor mount. Also the Maddog river raft frame company also has these mounts,406-726-3574.

This mount held a 20horse motor pushing about a thousand pounds into a headwind.

Find the specifications for your boat somewhere online, or go to achillesinflatables.com and find a new boat similar to yours. They will list in the specs the maximum HP you are supposed to use (probably 3 HP). Don't know how wise it is to exceed this. I've got a 6 HP on my 10' achilles and it's a handful sometimes so I would imagine 9.9 on your 7' could be dicey.
