Aux on Searider 4m

Hi All

Do you think I could squeeze a Evinrude 4hp 2st on a bracket on a SR4 with a Mariner 60hp . Offered one at a good price but want to make sure it will fit first . Would I have too much weight at the back with both of them ?

Thanks

Erm...depends. What mariner 60 is it? My evinrude 4 won't fit with a 93 mariner 50 but used to fit with my old blueband. The steering gets in the way.

We used to get a little 5 hp (evenrude I think-its still in the garage tucked away behind a boat) on the back of our 4m alongside the 50hp Yamaha without any real problem and without any bracket, just sat on the transome and scratched the cowling of the main engine when it felt like it ! The A frame was built spec for the boat and the previous owner by his friend in the s/s business (now there was a friend to have !)and took up no transom space at all. We did try it on a spring ebb (10m tide here ) once and had an onboard discussion as to whether we were actually moving and if so in which direction!

Its a 96 Mariner 2 stroke . I don't think it will fit straight on to the transom as the thickness of the transom increases as it get closer to the tubes and it would be very hard to clamp it on securely . An outboard bracket maybe the best option .

Hi

I only intend to use it out on the lakes if needed as I am usually on my own. If I am offshore I usually am in the company of other boats so a good rope should do for back up .

Was the 5hp enough to empty out the flooding hull ?.

Thanks

Thanks

Well I got it to fit and no problems with the steering on the 50 with the 5 up or down limited steering on the five. I drilled the aux bracket and put pins in to lock it into position and fitted two rings onto the ďAĒ frame so I can also tie the aux top and bottom also had to fit some braces from the ďAĒ frame into the hull.
Down side it lot of weight on the transom so it takes longer to get on the plane and the aux needs to go up by a 100 mm as the prop just catches the water, so Iím now looking to keep the bracket and move the aux inboard to the bow
First time out since the referb was completed great weekend
