Re: Transom mounting plates

Just the one I posted above - but everything went in great. Having some work done on the boat and motor, including doing a through hull installation on the motor currently. I can post a couple of pics when I get it back. All good. I guess I'm confused on the mounting plate vs. the engine bracket. I...
