Nordica 16 motor bracket

I am about to become the proud owner of a Nordica 16 as soon as the weather up north clears and I can get to the north shore of Superior to pick her up. I have one question. Does anyone have a diagram or a photo of the motor bracket that was an option. Mine dosen't have it and I need to put a kicker on her. Thanks Jim Western Michigan 1-616-843-5999 text/photo enabled

Across the lake?
Am just planning my renovations to the "Amber Dawn" ... new paint job, new outboard bracket ... spring loaded, new cabin and cockpit cushions, installing new electrics, lighting, GPS and depth sounder and an automatic electric bilge pump under the cockpit floor (tired of wet feet). That's most of it. With our weatehr the way it is now, I hop eto be on the water in Bathurst the 1st of June. Love the boat ... something larger would be more comfortable but the Nordica is paid for so that'a a bonus.
How do you like the Nordica?
I didn't get a chance to sail in heavy winds last year so am looking forward to that this year... I'm told the weather cannot be too strong for this little boat. It's certainly solid.
I'm posting a pic a pic ... relaxing in the bow!

windyfred Hi fellow sailors ...
I am one of those Nordica 16 owners...
proud and impatient ...
In Bathurst today, it's -25 degrees Celcius and "Amber Dawn" is
sleeping in our garage.
She is due for some major renovations this spring and I can hardly wait ...
I notice when some owners say thay are "newbies", they really mean sailing less than 10 years but with lots of hours on the water. Well, I'm newer than that, so I'll call myself a novice.
We bought the Nordica this past summer, about halfway through the season ... had a great time and are looking forward to our second season.
I am looking for an article I saw last year abvout some sailor who mouted his outboard in the cockpit. Can't seem to find it ... Doe anyone know where?
It's just a thought since, with the canoe stern, out 5hp Honda is way out there and I feel like I'm halway out of the boat thrying to handle the motor.

akoutdoors1 I'm loving my Nordica 20. I'm getting her fitted out for coastal cruising. She is an 83 I believe and in great shape, from Michigan most recently- now in Missouri- soon to be in WA, BC, AK.
