I mounted my SR4 engine centrally. It did lean a little to one side under acceleration but any twist was unnoticeable due to the boat being thrown about.

Keep the engine right down on the transom. It doesn't take much wave height to get the whole thing out of the water so you want as much grip as you can get.

Cheers Nos.

She's going back together at present. It's back on the trailer, trailer took a bit of fiddling as it fitted where it touched, everything was wrong. After extending the snubber bar by a ft things began to improve. Really pleased with they way the tubes have come-up after TFRing and 2 coats of protectorant. Fitted new Teleflex system this eve, console back in tomorrow. Hopefully hang the Honda this w/end also.

Looks like you're in for a busy weekend. Try to set 5 mins aside to send that nut & woodruff key to me, won't you?

Will do.

Just bin down the Boathouse and per-chased a 2kg Bruce and 4m of 8mm chain. Thought about 5kg, but too big for foredeck area, I reckon with the weight of chain it'll give decent hold.
Tele-cable swapped ok, cutting new warps and bow-line to lengths.
