I have got a 5.4metre ribtec which I have just purchased an auxilary outboard for, its a 4hp 2 stroke. It fits nicely to the side of the main outboard to use on its own, but due to the restricted space, it wouldnt be suitable to keep it there while running the main engine as turning would be interefered with.
I have heard you can get mounts for the auxillary which extend it out from the transom for easier use and also I have heard of folding ones, so that the auxilary can be folded back and then rested horizontally above the tube (A folding engine mount if you will).
I cant seem to find any on the net though, could someone recommend me one and a place to get one. I would much rather have the auxiliary mounted permanently on the rib ready to use, rather than having to unbolt it and rebolt it every time i want to use it
