    That excellent! I might just try that. It avoids having to drill holes thru the hull. I could glue/bolt to the hooked plywood for the outboard attachment. Many

      Not sure how big your boat is but I made one for a 36 foot steel boat that hung over the transom which was really quite steeply raked. The plywood hooked over the gunnel and was also tied in place. I tied ropes through holes at the bottom and ran them forward on the port side and between the rudder and transom on the port side and then forward--the line goes under the hull and forward. I used a spring loaded motor bracket to attach the engine to the plywood structure. Sorry no photo's. To measure the distance at the water line to the gunnel just hand something over the back on a string and measure the distance. Mark H
