That's the beauty of this forum, others can learn from those that had learnt the hard way.

I'm confused about the ply going soft bit . BHG seem to rig all the Yamaha/avon combos with ply between the engine & boat (including mine) , and nearly all sibes have ply ( with no gel) transoms.

Does the ply in these cases take some of the shock away due to 'sqidgeniess' I wonder ?

The bigger boat is mounted with nothing as with most 'bigger' ribs/engines I see?

The question I guess - does size matter ?
