If ye raise an engine, do you pack the area between the transome and the saddle?

Do we believe that a packer is "necessary"? I'm not convinced it should actually be bearing any real load...

Not really sure Poly but LPB'S insisted that it would be better to fit one on mine when it was fixed, but I guess that there are a lot of ribs out there that have raised their engines up an inch or two without being packed for sure.

I believe that vibration could be the problem rather than the transfer of trust to the transom

starboard saddle stern bracket

the starboard saddle/ stern bracket arrived yesterday. perfect condition. I am no looking for a port bracket as it is warped/ twisted. I did not think that cast metal could twist/ warp/ strain.

i have been looking at jack up plates now these seem to be ok but i cant see how the saddle is a tight fit over one of these.if its so important that the saddle is resting on the transom how come a jack up plate is ok when the only point of contact is where the bolts pass through.or am i missing something
