The prop goes outside the boat and should be at the bottom end!

Engine mounting

Make sure you use the middle holes in the saddle and be prepared to move the engine to get the best and safest ride with this combination, i had the same set up on a 4m sea-rider with a mariner 60 and it was very easy to get out of shape and in rough seas was very dangerous, a plastic 25LT water tank in the bow helped the handling no end. A very fast rib for it's size!

thanks manos, always good to get a opinion - especially seeing as you had a similar/same setup - how was it in rough seas then mate, youve got me a little concerned now

With regard to the "saddle" which bit is that exactly, sorry if im being thick here ! - with the moving the engine about I think im going to be restricted arnt I if i drill holes and put the bolts through I cant move it port or starboard can i?, I'm sure i read something ages ago on here about having it mounted 1/2" to starboard to allow for prop direction, or shall I disregard that and have it bang on in the centre seeing as I have such a small craft -

Mnay thanks in advance

Outboard Mounting

...I had mine at 1" offset but it made little difference really, the most significant difference was the 25LT in the bow, this helped to tame it down quite a bit.
In big seas and big chop the boat tended to lose grip whilst chine walking and fell onto it's portside unexpectedly, pretty scary!!!
I call the part of the engine where the bolts go through the saddle, it's probably incorrect terminology and someone will probably be unable to resist the urge to jump on this one!
