twin engines

hi,
what engines are you going to install ? I suggest you choose the lightest ones available ...

I made my 1st "twin" Rib 25 years ago, it was a 5-metre with 2x50HP Volvo, then I made a lot of them, so I know most of the problems - not all !

Should you need infos, I am ready to help you

Hi, the inner part i cut first to reinforce the transom. But it was too wet to glue and i didn`trust the board.
So i cut it all out to make a complete new one.
I have a 85hp Evinrude as a single and from my Zodiac the 40hp Mariner.
I look for a second 40HP Mariner to use the as a twin at my Searider.
So i have to make all new , i want it to fit both versions. Avon is offering
the single and the twin transom, so i am looking for the original shape of the twin version.

Before , when i bought it, it was a bloody DIY version of a transom repair.
A piece of aluminium, a piece of wood, a few spax and a complete tube of silicone.
It was cut out for a short leg outboard. Many holes in the transom were sealed with silicone . I decided to make all new , so i feel better while
accelerating to full speed.
