Re: homemade outboard

68.4.211.130

Did not get alot done on actual construction tonight, I went to home depot with the lower end trying to figure out a way to connect the ABS to the steel tube. I am going to try to use a u-bolt at the upper ABS pipe to hold it in place, and then use your idea about taking advantage of the exising bearing bolts to hold the lower end in place. To do that I bought some longer 1/4" bolts that go thru the bearings. I forgot to buy the smaller motor mount bolts while I was there. Maybe I will get by with the bolts that I have although they bind big time. Hopefully being bolted in those two places will be enough to hold the abs in place adequatly. I will have to wait on the prop until I get the rest of this finished, the more I think about attaching that prop correctly the more I worry about it. Updated photos below
