Aux Engine Bracket - Searider

Calling all Searider owners - would like to fit an aux bracket to the transom, we have an A Frame that prevents fitting our aux outboard directly to the transom and I suspect this would also impact on the movement of the main outboard - as usual I have some questions:

1. If you own a Searider with an aux bracket - which one did you fit/ what would you recommend

2. What would you recommend for sealing the holes drilled through the transon

Many thanks

J

On a 5.4? I'd fit the smallest I could get away with. What size engine are you going to put on it? In terms of sealing, Sikaflex is what you want.

Hi Tim

It is a long shaft 3.5hp - will that be okay?

TQ
