Re: Engine Mount - Holder 14

This worked for me. Im using a 30 lb. thrust Minnkota on my holder 14. Ive only used it with my wife and I on boat, but it did well. I used composite decking board to fill the space on the transom. Its waterproof and really light weight and the entire assembly is quickly installed/removed.

"I like simple and cheap.", good luck. I'm looking to do the same thing. I can't find an outboard, even that small for less than a grand (example Hondas 2.5hp) . Please report back with PowerPlant and mounting pics. I was even thing about electic rechargeable trolling motor.

Re: Engine Mount - Holder 14

use a spacer to make it even with the lip. the transom is plenty strong for 2.5 hp

Yes, most likely.

G10, or FRP panels for backing plates would be best.

Engine Mount - Holder 14

I'm looking to add an engine mount to a Holder 14 for a 2.5 or 3 hp engine. The engine weighs probably 35 lbs. The boat is used in saltwater.

I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions on:

1.) The specific mount to use. I like simple and cheap.

2.) How to install it since the transom isn't really made to hold an outboard engine directly due to the lip at the top of the transom and maybe the strength of the transom - thus I think the need for the motor mount.

The typical pull up kicker attachment is just too much and I don't think I have the room to mount it.

How do you mount something like this. Do you need some sort of backing plate to provide enough strength for the mount?

Any ideas, experience or advice would be most appreciated.
