I'm thinking the same thing. The engine on mine looks like its always been on that boat and the transom looks fine?

My turn to ask a silly question was the plate there to add depth to allow the engine to be clamped rather than bolted on? If its bolted and you dont need the angle of the engine altered should be ok without????

A phone call to avon to be on the safeside perhaps??

I had a Mercury 50 clamped on mine originally and it fitted and wouldn't have moved without a plate.

However,I chequerplated mine outside to stop damage during putting the engine on,stop any small movements while it was on there from marking/wearing the gelcoat and to spread the load while I was really hammering it.

I chequerplated the inside to stop the bolts pulling hard on a small area as I've seen washers pulling into transoms on Seariders quite a lot.

Not sure of the exact material, but it was supplied by Pepe marine as an offcut from the material they make their Aluminium fishing boats from.

Aluminium perhaps
