71Irwin32 aware that I spent a lot of time and effort to reinforce the inside of the transom with G-10 epoxy board....exensively. Also fiberglass mesh and epoxy all the way around its perimeter.

This included the back stay. Lots of people told me I didn't need to on this 'ol boat, the transom is thick....I did it anyway.

Back ona board with the outboard

I'm back to the marina and I brought the motor bracket and outboard. I'd almost like to just have the marina haulout redue the prop shaft, but I won't...nobody these days will do a thurough job, at least not as good of one as I will. At the yard here, owners or anybody else, can even walk into the yard to inspect the work. So I must mount the outboard and go the 16 miles across the bay to the DIY yard. can see a video of the final bracket on the front page on my signature url....

This a hugh lot of work just for one trip across the bay.
