Photo of motor mount needed

Would someone send me a photo of a motormount in place on a scot? I'm mounting mine (with my nifty new Honda 2HP 4 stroke) this weekend and want to get it right. I do have templates but like visuals as well. bmik...@idworld.net Thanks! Brian

I am in the same situation as Brian.

I am in the same situation as Brian. I have the template and the motor mount, but a picture would be a big help as a visual reference to make sure I get it right the first time!

I don't have a picture, but I want to give a caution about the template. I have received many templates from FS over the years and have never had a problem with any of them, but I did with the motor mount. The template goes on the outside of the stern. But before you drill any holes, crawl under the back cockpit and see where it will go. You'll notice a reinforced area that should correspond to the motormount area. I didn't do this. Unfortunately, when I mounted mine, the right bolt (as seen from the outside, the one closest to the center of the boat) missed the reinforced area. After I discovered this, I double checked to see if I had misaligned the template. I had not. Perhaps the person who built the boat misaligned the reinforced area or the template was off. I don't know, but that bolt is in the wrong spot. If I had to do over again, once I had the template in the correct place, I would nudge it some farther abeam to make sure that I hit the reinforced area.

This makes me nervous.

This makes me nervous....I'm going to mount the mount <G> this weekend and want to get it right. I'll measure inside and out first but a photo would still help. Brian

An attempt to post inages of the mount currently on 277 will occur the morning of March 3. Stay tuned... Ok, it seems you can post a hyperlink to access pics and images after storing them on your webpage or a server storer location, accessed via url. Direct image posting didn't work. I have images I will e-mail to any that ask, more than happy to assist. Buon Vento!

Did everyone get the motor mount photos they needed? My boat has melted out of it's snowbank and I would be glad to send photos to email addresses. I don't know if there is a way to post photos to this page. Maybe someone could provide me with a tutorial if there is.

Success!! I mounted the motor mount today and it went off without a hitch. I hit the balsa reinforcement and my motor (Tohatsu 3.5) tilts up fine with no problems. It will all be tested on Saturday so wish me good luck. Thank you so much for everyone on this forum's help and advice and pictures.
