RE: Help me find a dinghy motor mount!

Tony:
Mine was hanging there when I bought the boat in 94, looked old and there was an old 6hp Evenrude on the little dink, sized for the mount. I had a 15 Merc on my inflatable, that I had brought over from my old sailboat, so I got rid of the smaller stuff. Didn't get around to taking the mount off till this fall, when I was refinishing where the rail attached to the underside of the upper deck. When I had the rail off, I decided that old piece of teak had to come off. There wasn't anything between the u bolts and the 1.125" rails, and no marks were left. I had just bought a bunch of U-bolts that size, so those went into my spares kit. The lump of teak came home. It has lots of life left in it, if I can think of something that needs that thickness.
The nuts were countersunk into the teak, to leave the engine side without any protrusions.
