Dude it doesn't bolt to the boat it bolts through the tilt tube on the motor, same as cable steering

If you have a Merc offshore saddle (single vertical ram, as fitted to XR2, 2.5 EFI offshore etc), you don't need to bother.

The bungees are to stop the motor kicking up on re-entry if you have a 'girls saddle' with twin horizontal trim rams, and a vertical tilt ram. (domestic/pleasure motors), with these, the motor is draged away from the trim rams on re-entry, then when you stick your foot back down, the slack is taken up like a slide hammer! Very nasty!

Nasty. Shouldn't you skilled hardboaters have the power on at re-entry?

Us ribbers do.

Glad to see your sense of humour is still intact, thought that might have been a little stiff.
