This should be a picture of the nearly final bracket. I couldnt really have bought one because I wouldnt have been able to control the projection, height etc so the transom wheel could swing past etc, plus they are really expensive for some reason.

It weighs in at 1.5kg which probably isnt too bad. If it were having an engine on permanently then it might need a bit of ply clad on the corners but I could stand on it and it wouldn't break so sure its fine.

Are you guys experiencing conduction problems, that's sib going to a side as the propulsion is not done at middle transom ? Can you fully throttle without any issues when encountering a hard wind emergency ?

Happy Boating

That's a tidy piece of wood work you have there!
Looks good!
Hope it does the trick.
Can't see why it shouldn't.

Errrrmmm?
Can't make out your post?
Dont know if your phone/ tablet has went haywire with the predictive messaging?

Don't imagine the sib will go straight with the engine out on a limb but it doesn't tend to go straight even with the 20 hp slap bang in the centre of the transom unless im giving it some wellie.
I have to constantly work the tiller at trolling speeds to go in a straight line.
I've worked an Alaska 500 with a 15hp Yamaha mounted as an aux on the starboard side.
The 50 hp Evinrude chucked it and the old Yammie got deployed.
The 500 didn't want to go straight eithers but I worked the tiller and got us back to shore nevertheless.
Im hoping mines will be able to do the same should the need ever arise.

You are so patient not to get out there and try it. Maybe the water isn't 100 yards away like it is for me. I think it will track fine because you'll only be going about 3knts so the v will help it track. If at planning speeds that would be a different matter. Try the main engine out there for a laugh and post a you tube clip. I predict just as it starts planning you will do a wicked dognut. Cool

I'm 20 mile to the sea.
I'm patiently waiting till the end of the month to get away for four nights with the sib and caravan and my old man.
Some fishing and a few beers - bliss!
I think I'd break the transom with 51 kg of Twatsu hanging on it.
With my 18stone the Sib would roll over upside down!
It would make for a hilarious YouTube video going at full tilt tho!
Straight into the boating fail compilation ahahahah!

Kaman,

Check if that wooden mount flexes sideways when giving full power with aux sitting on it.

If central engine dosen't want to go on a straight course, you must play rotating trim tab under anticav plate untill boat goes straight. Probably will need a little help by tighten a bit the steering friction nut as to achieve a more steady steering.

Happy Boating

Hi Locozodiac.
I meant that the sib wouldn't go straight at slow speeds due to the tide and chop knocking it off course.
I do a lot of trolling and my tiller arm works like a fiddlers elbow to keep it relatively lol!
My mount is 50 mm 3mm thick box section mounted to 4mm sheet steel.
I have used 4xm12 stainless bolts through the transom to secure.
Large square stainless washers on outside and inside as well.
Sealed it with sikaflex.
The plate that is mounted on the inside of the transom is almost half the size of the transom to help spread the load.
I have mounted the engine and gave it a bit of o lean on to check for play.
Not a bit!
It I'd very robust and I don't envisage any issues with it handling the lightweight aux.
Time will tell when I get it on the sea.
You can see the bolts in the pictures.
Fingers crossed.

Moment of truth draws near.
I am away Tuesday till Friday to my caravan with the trusty Sib.
I have done a lot of upgrades over the winter.
The main one is the aux mount.
I will finally get to sea trial it.
Fingers crossed!
I will update the thread upon my return.
Happy boating!
