I looked into this, and in the end I have given up due to all the comments about the brackets breaking, and the mind field in buying one - they seem to range from under £100 to over £200 for the same thing.

We use one of the adjustable ones on my father in laws small cabin cruiser (14' CJR) I'm forever lifting the engine back up out of the water, it constantly drags when it drops and to be fair it's a real pain in the #%^*!
I'll post pics of what I come up with, I've some scrap 316 stainless and plenty of filler rods, any excuse to practice with the tig!!

Breezeblock, do you have steering with the aux engine or does the A frame get in the way?

Cheers, I'll try and modify the frame to suit, might not be pretty but as long as it's functional for the TT!!!

Will look at that tomorrow, with a bracket similar to yours I may be able to do that as the main engine steering may get in the way if just mounted straight to the transom. Just got a call out!!! Off to work again......
