As for the whole hard mount to soft mount thing... well... I know it has meant a LOT of work but I have absolutely no regrets so far. I used to genuinely dread starting the engine on our boat. So much so that I still have an involuntary flinch when I turn the starter key.

LOL, I gave my Dad my copy of said book for Father's Day, many, many, many years ago. And just inherited it back about a year ago. So now I have 2 copies.

Thank you for that link. Amongst the interesting and somewhat sobering information is the explanation for why the current exhaust on our boat is constructed as it is. I shall most definitely proceed with the support bracket now as the reasons for the surprisingly high inverted U are now clear.
