the transom is nearly 50mm thick at that point so you can use some beefy stainless screws

FYI www.salmonpowersports.com
This shows some of products that we manufacture, but is not big on technical details. I'll post some pics later today
We do three different types of water pick up, the one that is most popular with racers is the box section fabricated unit. It does the job and is the cheapest in our range.
The compact cast pick up is a different animal, it is precision machined and is O Ring sealed so it won't leak when your boats in the shed. I can let Jon have some WPU's and Control Boxes so that you guy's can check them out.
Regards,
Steve S.
