Redbay 6.5 Auxiliary

Hi, has anyone mounted an auxiliary on a redbay 6.50?

Looking for inspiration. I have a 140hp Suzuki and got a 5hp long shaft Suzuki arriving next week.

I think I can do it without a mount - would be nice to avoid a mount if possible.

Any direct experience of this or pictures of this sort of set up. I have trawled the internet with no joy.

Ta

OB

Depends entirely on the design of the transom. Typically you wouldn't require a mount, but some fettling of the transom capping may be needed. A photo of the transom arrangement would be useful....

Presumably you won't want it in the down position whilst it's not in use therefore if you're not using a lifting bracket you'll need more than the standard tilt latch to support it whilst travelling. Some form of stay on which the leg will be supported perhaps.

Yes I thought of putting it on the back of the rear seat back but like you trying to move it in any swell was not good!!
