The black beauty of brackets!! I like the idea of a motor safety cable included to catch the motor if it does drop. Wondering how to do that on our new bracket. Some s/s cable....think.....think....

Vince, do you have room to mount your Aux direct to the transom? From my experience this is a far better option. You also get the benefit of it being easier and quicker to use.
I have a 6HP 4 stroke fitted to a 4.8 Ribcraft that has been directly mounted to the transom for 3500+ miles without an issue.

Yeah, thats probably a better way to do it, but on the Leeway, you have a 2" or so thick transom, then a rear facing lip that comes out another half inch (to deflect water in a running sea, or if you stop too quick). It means the standard clamp of an engine wont go over the top of it, hence the bracket.

In that case go for the best bracket you can get.
Best of luck.
