RE: Help me find a dinghy motor mount!

Well, I have to thank you all here @ TF for making me see the very simple and easy solution to a mount for our dinghy motor. *While it's not a sexy piece of equipment (the mount OR the engine lol), both work great. *The engine is actually completely rebuilt so while she looks old she runs good and is less likely (hopefully) to get stolen. *The engine mount will work for now...the sea ray owners near me may consider it too simple but hey- it's a 27-28 year old trawler after all- I am allowed some poetic license, right?*Simple piece of yellow pine I stained and drilled for Ubolts and recessed the washers and nuts so as to not protrude....works for now until I find a "sexier" solution but I really can't see spending $200 for a "professional" set up. *May try to get a nicer piece of wood and stain to match exterior teak but at least I am not having to toss the outboard inside my kayak until I find something a little nicer looking.
