I suggest that the box section should have spacer's running thro where the bolts are otherwise the box section may/will distort when the bolts are tightend.

Well who ever put the engine on the back used box with no spacers and it's lasted a good few years with out going flat

A plate would look better, just didn't want to upset anything by changing from the box section. Need to get shorter f'ing bolts now !!

I suppose it depends on the wall thickness of the box section.

Anyway, why are you bolting lumps of steel to your transom…are you concerned of the SR’s strength or what..

You were recently complaining that the back end is already too heavy, lumps of metal aint gona help ya...

Its also worth bearing in mind the long term corrosion problems you would get with disimilar metals (s/s bolts throught Ali plate) if you did follow that route.
