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.

At sea, the tube handle and transom bracket are not fixed positions, relative to each other.

This will not end happily.

Cancel.
I've sussed that you mean the handle on the dinghy.
I could use the underside of the engine plate as an anchor point instead it isn't going to flex or move.

The prop looks awfully close to your tubes.

Hi Jep, it does in one of the photos, but I think it is just the angle of the picture.
There is plenty of room on the engine mounting plate to move the engine closer or further away from the tubes see attached. It can go close as long as it don't touch / shred it I'll be fine

Rod holders

Made some brackets a few years ago to mount rod holders .
I utilised the pre drilled holes with eyelets to hold the rod holder plates in position. I didn't meant to drill four self tapping screws into transom.
I have altered it slightly to mount on the engine mount.
They really are handy bits of kit for fishing from a Sib

Above should read - I didn't want to drill holes for four self tapping screw into the transom.


Me and my sausage fingers!!!

Previously looked like this prior to engine mount.
I have two rod holders which are set in a metal bracket.
The bracket is screwed into the underside of the seat.
A rod can be seen in the picture sitting in one of the rod holders.
Invaluable pieces in a small fishing Sib in my opinion

Hi,
I am planning to make a set of wheels for the transom of my 2.7 sib. They look expensive for what they are to buy. They look flimsey too, And because my little honda rotates 360 degrees they would get in the way of the handle. So using my previous skill as a welder i plan to make some with a tube sliding within a slightly larger one. Figured it out , just looking for the tube.
