I'm a bit shy of the ones with a plastic pad like the Gael Force one after Neil Harvey had the pad on his fall off. T/103/b_Outboard_bracket.jpg[/IMG]
you are worried about the wrong problem - the pad did NOT fall off, the metal of the bracket snapped and twisted, causing me to nearly lose an outboard overboard overboard. It happened whilst going along at about 25 knots, single handed, engine was hanging there supported by not much, was lucky it had not twisted the other way into the shaft of main engine
Will probably never use one again! And yes, it was rated for that size engine.
