What speed do you get with your 200?
The rock on the boat is very small (and i like pies) I'll check tomorrow if its dry we're out for a play
I made the bracket as you can't fit the aux over the transom due to the lip at the top and the side transom boxes. It's a solid bracket bolted to the transom so the engine is clear when tilted
I've a separate tank for redundancy and the aux is a 2 st but with my filter/separator set up you could run a 4 st aux off the main tank or the main engine off the aux tank if needed
I've had 48 knots at 5200 rpm but i've got a new prop to try
I've attached some pics to try and show the transom, the rear jockey seats can be removed on four female flush fixings and the Outhill console is smaller than the Osprey one so you've got 200 mm either side to walk around
