Marked the engine mounting plate with duct tape.
Piece that is marked with tape will be cut off to allow better water clearance.
Box section hanger to be cut and internal sleeve to be fitted to section with engine plate.
This will slide into box section of the bracket more or less allowing the unit to be split in half.
To secure it I will drill it and use stainless bolts to hold together.
This will allow engine plate to be removed for towing and storage etc.
An inch and a half section to be removed from box section when cut is made.
This is to get engine plate closer to the tube and improve water clearance whilst sib making turn to the left.
