Wow, that is pretty cool little device and they are certainly very proud of that technology lol. That's too bad about the glue up and I can say from experience that stowing an outboard motor in the aft engine room is problematic. And mounting on the handrails is not the best chose either.

A 2hp Honda weighing 35 lbs on a stern rail (which was designed to be used as a backrest for a bench seat), mounted on the T of the stanchion with only 2 feet of vertival stanchion. It was perfectly fine with no movement and no stress cracking around the mounting flanges. We did it for 9 years with no issues.

However, I agree, I wouldn't mount a motor on a bow rail.

This is about as good as I have. I no longer own this boat. This pic is at least 7 years old, could be more. It looks like I just had the back half of the canvas replaced.

In fact it looks like I JUST built the motor mount in this pic. I built it with PT lumber, but waited 1-2 seasons before I painted it. It looks like new wood in that pic.
