mounting a bow mount


uffdapete

Question

What is the best way to mount a bow mount electric motor on an '76 S-16 Lund. It has a small 8-10" triangular cast metal (probably aluminum) plate instead of a platform big enough for the mounting plate.

Are there any clamps made to grip the gunwhale molding? Or can you just drill through the gunwhale and bolt a platform to it?

I once had a 16 ft Lund that was like what you describe.

I got this idea from a good buddy up in Bemidji-

First he took a piece of cardboard and cut it until it fit the contour of the backside of the bow plate. He used this as a template.
Next he found a scrap piece of 3/4 inch treated plywood.
Using the template, he cut out a small "deck" on which to mount the motor. I made mine so it would go about 1 foot back from the backside of the bow plate.
Then, cover the "deck" with some carpet, preferably marine grade or indoor-outdoor (you can get a 4x6 piece at fleet farm for $6). I fastened mine on the underside with staples by wrapping it around the edge.
Screw or bolt the "deck" onto the gunwalls and then you're ready to mount your motor to it.
Mine lasted until I decided to assign the boat to full-time duck duty. There should also be room enough to mount a flasher or a graph.
Good luck

Thanks guys - just another great benefit of this site - when you have a question somebody on here has probably "been there, done that".

      Every year more and more people come to IT because it is really the technology of the future, but still it is worth knowing what is in demand now, you can find it in this article https://computools.com/automotive-retail/ the sphere is described in great detail and why you need to be a software engineer!

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
