Outboard Mounting Board
I have a Honda 7.5 (1984 O'Day 222) with an oak mounting board and it has a large crack.
Options are making another or using West Marine's:
Replacement mounting board 9-1/2" x 10-3/4" x 2"
GARELICK model# 488049 $49.99 USD.

Has anyone used the GARELICK mounting board in a retro fit?

Out board Mounting Board
I just this weekend got my O'Day 192 out of storage and started to prepare for the Minnesota summer. Over winter I bought the Garlick mounting board from some one on one of these sites for half of West Marine's price. There were a couple of sets of holes for the bolts and it was a simple and straight forward replacement. There was even a spot for the spring that helps push the handle out when you try to lift the motor. One of the best buys I have made for my boat. However, I have not used it yet. I appears to be a great improvement.

My wooden board broke when I was trying to fight 3 foot waves to get out of a small harbor into a large lake. I had to try to hang onto a running 5hp motor, kill the engine. throw it on board and then fend off the rocks that were trying to beat my little boat to hell. I would recommend replacement before breakage.

outboard on O'Day 192
Just out of curiosity what is the weight of your outboard on your 192? I am thinking of replacing my 4 hp 2-stroke motor which weighs about 30 lbs with a 4 stroke. I am a little hesitant about buying a 4 hp 4 stroke because they all weigh about 50-60 lbs. OTOH I am concerned that a 2 hp 4 stroke, though about 30 lbs, will have enough power for the 192. The dealers claim that the 4 stroke 2 hp is at the prop and is probably the same power at the prop as my 4 stroke.

Re: Outboard Mounting Board
I replaced my board last fall with a GARELICK on my 1979 O'Day 25. I used the bigger board (don't remember model no.) as I have a Honda 10hp. The motor weighs about 95 lbs. The board was extremely easy to install and so far has performed nicely, ie: the motor hasn't fallen off.

Re: Outboard Mounting Board
I am buying an engine for my 26' O'Day. Its is complicated with what is out there. I have been advised nothing less than a 15 hp long shaft electric start? You seem to have a smaller one on your boat? Any recommendations?

Re: Outboard Mounting Board
I'm in Lake Ontario,4 stroke 9.9 HP high thrust prop. I don't have current or tidal issues, if your on the coast or faster moving river the more HP the better, better looking at it than for it :)

Re: Outboard Mounting Board
I am on the DelBay (Southern NJ, Delaware) We get some ugly waves at times and winds. Great for sailing but sometimes you need to run in, quickly.

Re: Outboard Mounting Board
We have an O'Day 25 CB on the Chesapeake Bay. We have used a Honda 9.9 HP long shaft as long as we've had the boat (well over a decade) and have only wished for a bigger motor one time. We tool an over night trip and had to get home in a tropical depress the weekend before Hurricane Isabel. Wind was a steady 35 kts and we were not able to point head to wind with our 9.9 HP to raise the double reefed main. We did get back home under sail but would really have liked a bigger engine at the outset. Other than that one incident we have been served well with the 9.9

Re: Outboard Mounting Board
Thank you for the infor. There are 2 sets of information so far. That the
15hp is a basically a 20hp or that a 15hp is a 9.9hp energized.
Do you have remote control?
