They're the right size...just right.
Looks like it might come with windvane steering by the looks of that bracket...that would be good.

I would too.

How far off the centerline of the stern to the outside edge of the bracket should I mount it. I am gonna mount the bracket directly to the boat. That is if I buy it.
I'd mount it basically centered on the port or starboard side, as low as you can get it and still be able to use a G-10 backing plate (Garalite).

Quote:
I take it I won't be able to motor sail with an outboard if I'm healed.
Correct.

Quote:
I also found a couple newer 25" tiller motors. One 2004 Honda 9.9 asking $1000 and a 2007 mercury 9.9 with 3 hours on it asking $1500 OBO on both and both 4 strokes.
Can't help you there, motors are something you'll have to evaluate in person. Maybe a Sailnetter in your area can help you out with that part? Anyone?

Quote:
Should I put rubber behind the bracket. Will it vibrate and wear the fiberglass?
You won't need hard rubber, forget all that business. Install it and bed it/seat it in grey butyl.

Quote:
How long and what diameter SS bolts should I get? What kind of backing plate on the inside. I assume I need one. Maybe a one piece SS.
It depends on the bracket you settle on. Figure out which one you're gonna get, then post here and I'll be able to help out.

Quote:
In exciting. I can't wait. I hope everything goes as planned.


Quote:
Even if I like the boat tomarrow I can't buy it. I have to go get a loan Tuesday or Wed. Should I tell the bank/credit union it's for a boat? Or maybe take a home equity loan. My house is payed for. I don't want to take a personal loan because of the high interest rates.
Dunno man, that kind of stuff is all on you! 3k isn't much money in the boating realm, expect that to be one of the cheaper parts of your boating experience. Hell, my windvane alone cost about as much as the A30 you're looking at... Hopefully you can pay off 3k real quick (negating the interest thing), or just buy the thing outright. Boats aren't cheap, even when free - know that before getting in my man..

Quote:
If I tell them it's for a boat will they make me get it inspected and insure it? I know this should be done anyway but I'm just not going to do this on a $3000 boat that's 30'.
See my post above

Quote:
I have been a carpenter and electrician all my life. I can go over the boat. Besides it a Masonite cores Alberg sold with a non running motor. I will look over the running rigging, chain plates etc. He told me there's not one blister on the boat. And I believe him. He has pulled it three times sense he has owned it in three years. He bought the boat in the Keys four years ago. I will try to post some pics he sent me. They are of the boat in Fl when he bought it
I checked out the pics, she's in need of some real TLC and I don't know your level of commitment/ability so it's hard to tell you. For me? I'd own that thing tomorrow and have her bristol in a year. No fancy pants business this time, just a solid refit with zero frills. All labor, no fru fru...

Go for it man! 3k isn't anything at all compared to what it'll cost over the long term. Think of the 3k as your entry fee.

Ah, the old roller reefing boom, mine has that, does'nt work any more. Great little boat man. I would trade out that 1/4 inch anchor chain with something bigger and get R/v grade grey butyl, that marine stuff is the same, just more expensive.

Re: alberg 30' outboard bracket?

Yea, the boom is OEM - my ... ahem, last boat (god, it physically hurts to type that - that's gonna take some getting used to) had that as well.

Is it some kind of weird universe thing going here? What are the chances this thread would come along the very day I sold my A-30?

Wtf
