OB motor bracket

Your BCC is so gorgeous, as is Tom’s, I hesitate to show you my bracket. It has worked well, and is a mark II. The first one (epoxied plywood) was really ugly. We had a scrap piece of 1/4" marine grade Al in Australia and were lucky to find U-bolts that exactly fit the boom gallows posts. I doubled the Al for the U-bolts–perhaps not necessary. Plastic board was used to build up the area that the OB clamps to. Our 2.5HP Tohatsu works best with the lower unit turned 180 deg. The OB doesn’t intrude too much into the cockpit–if we have 4 in the cockpit, I try to sit with the OB. The mainsheet doesn’t interfere with the OB. Everything on a small boat is a compromise, isn’t it??
