Mounting Outboard On Reverse Transom

Re: Mounting Outboard On Reverse Transom

You need to mount a bracket on the transom for the outboard to clamp onto. Google "outboard motor bracket".
The trick is to find one that will work with the angle of YOUR transom. The one you use will also depend upon the size of your boat. You may need one that swings up & down with the motor on it so that you can keep the propeller from dragging when you're under sail. You may need a fixed one, because the motor weighs too much to lift. Depending upon the size of your boat and the weight of the motor, putting an outboard back there can really mess up your boat's sailing qualities.

Re: Mounting Outboard On Reverse Transom

I had the opposite problem a few years ago. Best option is to make up a wedge shape spacer to go between the transom and the bracket itself.

ozskipper's suggestion is the way to go. Something like this...


This one's on a power boat, but you get the idea.
