I had a marine fabricator make it up its one plate raised to the level of the top transom. The engines sit perfect with the cavitation plate perfectly in line with where it should be in the water. The deck is completely water tight and the engines are not over weight with the transom plate I have had made up. She sits perfectly in the water not stern heavy. But thanks for the heads up. But so far so good

Blimey, that must be nearly 190kgs hanging off the back of that boat.

The transom may take it but it'll take all the fun out of what should be a lively little RIB.

Thanks

Nick, since posting this thread you have heard from boat builders and people that have possibly OWNED more Seariders than you've seen and yet you still disagree with all their comments/suggestions.

Kind of pointless starting the thread really, but I'm sure you'll disagree.

Avon SR. 5.4 rebuild

Nick. this will be sooo unbalanced and potentially dangerous and Insurance etc.. with that weight on a narrow beam SR will cause a lot of stress and worse as you have raised the transom height.
all you are doing is loading up both ends of the see/saw and the inevitable will happen at some point dude.
The SR'S with twins only had one baler and not two also.

its not the transom plate thats the issue. the greater issue in the joins either side. If Avon had designed the Rib to take that weight then there would be no issue. but they didn't Nick

Matt, you might not get a reply. Nick might be enjoying a little "contemplation time" alone in a quiet room😏

I deleted his last post as I considered it abusive. At this stage he's still free to post though.

nckalderson please take note that it's OK for people to say that they think that what you are doing is a bad idea. It's not OK to abuse them.
