Mounting small outboard on stern rail

I've seen a few boats with the dinghy outboard installed on the cockpit stern rail, but not from close enough to see exactly how they did it

Mine is a Suzuki 2.5 that weighs 30lb so lifting it should not be an issue for me.

So how to mount it exactly? Are people mounting an outboard bracket to the rail? Or just hanging it off the rail?

I used something like this for my 4 horse 55 lb motor..and it works fine...

The Edson one sells for about $278.00...which is overkill..imo

I'm using that same mount from Defender. 10 bucks, and it seems adequate for the job of attaching my 30 pound outboard to the stern rail of my Catalina 309.

T37Chef will become famous soon enough
I picked a teak one up from the boat show last year like the one below...but I am going to have to upgrade to a more robust one with the new motor at almost 90#'s



ooops, looks like my post is too late
