transom aux outboard

looking at putting something on my transom for my aux engine.

was looking at this and wondering the best way to keep this on? i.e glue or if screws what can i use to make sure no water gets in through the holes?

edit-open to other suggestions if anything better is suggested-outboard is a new mariner 4 stroke FYI.

cheers

Attaching Auxiliary outboard

This is how I solved this problem.
I attached an outboard motor brackett to my A-Frame and when it was in the up position it was clear of the water and didn't creat any drag.
I've attached 3 photo's showing it both up and down and a side view.
Just another idea for solving the Auxilary question..

Had the same one on my boat for the last 4 years. I used a water proof equivalent of NoNails cannot remember what it was called but got it from B&Q and it is blue, the blurb says it will work on wet surfaces.
I am altering the layout of stuff fastened to my transom so came to take it off last weekend thinking it would peel off easily with a little heat, it took most of the morning and came off in bits as the glue was stronger than the protector.

thanks for replies.

i'll seek out something adhesive wise as i recon that is best way to go. anything to avoid putting holes in a transom has to be worth a go i'd think.

was hoping someone would recommend a suitable adhesive but i'll go on the prowl on google and see what i find.

cheers

I would not use an adhesive for fixing an aux bracket. I am about to fit one to my own rib and plan on using a plate modified to fit the bolts used for the transom reinforcement bar. If you could do something like this I think it would be better (maybe using ski/towing eyes).
Cant see any problem drilling the transom though, as long as you seal the bolts well there shouldn't be a problem.
