Well the bracket is setup for twins but I have only a big used Suzuki 250 so the bracket is going to need a little work.

I got the bracket from a gentleman who posted on here that he had some 733 parts. Good thing I don't live closer to him or I'd be like a kid in a candy store.

and it's looking more like a boat and less like a canoe with the new deck in the back

Thanks guys. As usual if I did some close up there are ugly spots but its good enough and trying to fix them would only make it worse. I think Ryan is living my mantra these days, "this sure would be easier the second time I rebuilt a boat". Everything I do is the first time (and last) and there is a steep learning curve with it all.

Bracket?

Why is a bracket necessary? I would have tought that it may be easier to modify the transom and keep the weight further in, especially since it was originally balanced for an i/o?

Transom is far too high for outboards (on most boats this size, not just RIBs, there's no such thing as 48" shaft outboard ) and not built for the weight either. The pod ties the weights of the outboards into the hull stringers and puts them low enough to actually have the props below the V of the hull.

I have noticed the high transom but tought that the height could be modifiedfor either single or double o/b. How is the bracket connected to the stringers?
