I will do. The honwaves transom comes factory fitted with m10 stainless steel eyelets - presumably for towing a wake board. I will use these with rope and some stainless steel carabiners to make sure none of the engines go under.
Cheers.

Aux engine mount.
Drilled mount and transom.
All looked, good absolutely solid.
It will easily take the 12.5 kg of the little Suzuki.

Looks Great
Thanks for posting these photos of your project as I have the same issue regarding room for aux on transom, I was toying with the idea of an electric aux as they are alot slimmer and would have fit on the transom but I was soon put off the idea when I asked the question on here.

So this idea of yours looks like it is a great solution to the issue, although I will wait to see what others have to say as could be some reason not go go down this route, but I cant think of any reason not to at the moment.

Good job

Cheers I have still to do a few bits to it yet, but you get jist of the idea.
I too thought about an electric motor.
What put me off was the size and weight of the batteries.
The little Suzuki packs a fair punch for its 12.5kg, more than most small electrics.
As the fuel tank is built into the unit it gives you two separate fuel sources should one become fouled.
Time shall tell how successful my contraption is.
If it gets me out of one sticky situation it will have been worth the 3-4 hours work I put into it.

Will it create a problem when towing the boat on the trailer?
