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.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
