RE: Help me find a dinghy motor mount!

ack. Hmm...well....it's a pretty tough piece of southern yellow pine....typically pretty darn tough wood and cut out of a 2x12. Point taken though. I will beat on it next time I am there to see if it wants to crack at all....I would be amazed if it does but I see your point about the grain. Luckily I've got more 2x12 stock laying around if I need to swap it out or I can get some oak or other material. Perhaps back to the workbench I go.....
