Just adding the finishing touches to the out rigger whilst on my Nightshift.
Should be good to go in the morning.
Will post pictures in due course.
Again feel free to give your views.
It's good to see things from another perspective.
I have already been alerted to a couple of my oversights by fellow Ribnet members.
Ultimately I would have realised them whilst sea trialing tho!
Just ordered some very large square stainless m12 washers to harness the m12 through transom securing bolts.
These will be sealed on the outside / water side of the transom section with sika flex.
The finished product is going to look a lot different from my original attempt.
Due to the Honwave having a very thick/robust transom I am confident that I can engineer / re-engineer this bracket to hold an auxiliary power source for my Sib.
Im not going to be blasting about at WOT with an auxiliary thrashing about on my bracket,
I will launch for fishing with my 20hp and troll 12 - 15 miles south then back, no more than 2.5 miles from shore.
Too far to row against a strong tidal surge.
Queue the ready waiting 2.5 hp auxiliary.
Fingers crossed anyway!!!!
I honestly don't think my Tohatsu 20hp is likely to malfunction any time soon but it only takes a poly bag to shear a pin and your screwed!
