Building a Transom Mount for a 90-115 hp motor

by R-E-D-E-2

I am in the process of building a Ken Hankingson 20'Vee Gull.

I have completed the hull construction but am looking to make some modification.

The plans were built to use an inboard with outdrive.
I am looking to free up some additional space on the deck and would like to build a floatable transom mount similar to any of the following.

The expense of these is very high and I am looking to reduce this so I can purchase a nice outboard.

Any help or information would be appreciated.

I will try to include some pictures on the next post, I have them on another computer.

You can find all the information on the boat on the Glen L web site under Ken Hankingson.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
