There was a bloke at Easdale with a boat called Raven who had his on a mount forward of the console - technical but sweet. I know a lad with a big RIB who has pod seats that lift out and can be replaced with an AUX stand.

Oof, in the part of the world you boat in you want your aux quick to deploy. If your engine dies in the middle of the sound in anything other than ideal conditions you don't want to be standing trying to wave 15+kg of engine around to get it on the transom whilst 4+ knots of current decide your fate. Maybe if you always went out with a fit, competent crew who knew the drill (and could be rigging the aux at the first inkling of an issue while you run through the oh shit check list) - but I don't think thats your normal MO?

Is a bracket impossible?

Did you think I was suggesting David wasn't competent ?

I assumed you were often alone, or with the Mrs or grandkids, and that they were not going to be much use?
