Calling all Ocean Pro Owners

It looks likely i`ll be purchasing a Humber Ocean Pro 6.3.

I like to take an auxillary motor out with me but the transom seems very high and due to the curved shape it looks like an aux bracket could be the only answer.
Either that or cut the transom to suit (would rather not)

Are there any OP owners out there with any solutions.

Pics would be good!

Brackets are crap in bad weather. Strap it down to the deck at the back, you've plenty of room. Get the arc trimmed flat on one side and clamp it straight on when you need it!

You`re right Paul. Looking at it, there doesn`t seem to be any other way.

Thanks for all your advice regarding OP purchase.

I`ll let you know when/what i purchase.

Im sure i`ll be pestering you with tape measure in hand.

Wouldn`t want to get transom mods wrong!

I got the grandad to it's little brother. and I just use a longshaft which (just) seems to fit between the toob and the curve of the cutout. It's also mounted very slightly at an angle, which doesn't really matter at 4 knts!
