Aux. outboard for Pacific 22

I have a Yamaha 8hp High Thrust outboard I would like to use as a spare on my P22.Trouble is I don't know whether to remove one of the cleats and use it on the wooden transom with a filler block of wood or mount a bracket on the transom and use it that way.

Have any P22 owners done this?

I have a 15hp Mariner which I mount directly on the transom. When its not in use I remove it from the transom and strap it to the back of the engine box, I have quite a bit of room there as the boat has a shortened engine box.
I also removed the starboard cleat so I could mount it directly.
I didnt like the idea of leaving it mounted to the transom as there was quite a bit of flexing with the engine tilted up.

Has anyone else had experience with this?

What is the minimum outboard size needed to push a Pacific 22 as an auxiliary?

Slaphead - did you try your outboard and did it work?

Haven't done it yet but thinking about it. Not sure you will have enough access to the inside of the transom (as the transom braces are about 4" thick) to bolt a bracket on. Easier option would be just to clamp the outboard to the top of the transom. Check you get the right length outboard though.

Hi, I've since sold the P22 and never actually used the aux outboard. This was the extra longshaft one which I just left laying on the foredeck at the port side and to be honest it was a bloody nuisance as it took up so much room. I removed the starboard cleat on the transom and carried a block of wood to beef it up if I ever had to deploy the aux. Years ago I tried a 15hp Yamaha which pushed the P22 along comfortably at about 6 knots and also had to use a 4 hp short shaft Yam in earnest in the Irish Sea in calm conditions once- about 2 knots and created loads of bubbles! The P22 just isn't designed to hide a spare engine anywhere unless you can cut a hole in the deck for'd of the console and mount some kind of retaining bracket under the deck or under a spare seat.
Hope that helps anyone.
