Considering that "Tondus" hasn't been heard in 4+ years, don't hold your breath waiting for an answer to your inquiry.

It's pretty sturdy and well crafted with proper backing. I didn't take any photos as I was just too lazy at the moment to crawl in. It's an example of a good solution and alternative to a rear mount.

Happy Soling-ing!

Side mount pictures

As I'm allowed to post pictures now, I've attached the photos I took of the engine mount on my Soling for greater clarity.

That's a great engine. I had one for several seasons, until a good friend bought it off of me for a trip to the bahamas they were taking.

A gas saildrive would be perfect... It would be much lighter and would only be run for short periods of time. I had thought about it in the past... but I don't think I could actually bring myself to go through with such extensive modifications to such a beautiful hull...!
