HD Engine brackets

Hi guys

Who made strong, heavy duty outboard engine brackets?

I have used Bobs Machine but I manage to bend them
Then I bought CMC Jack plate

http://www.iboats.com/Manual-CMC-Pow...view_id.485098

They are great and really tough in my opinion but they are only 10inch

I need something bigger to put on SW32
Bigger enough to fit all cables between boat and engines
Don't think I can fit all those cables in 10inch space

Any ideas?
Don't need to be hydraulic. They could be fixed ones without possibility to move up and down.

Mike

Don't think gil make them anymore. Stainless marine do tho. The yanks use then them to hang doubles, tripples and even quads on their big centre console boats.

I'd rather have one huge inboard myself though... Maybe a 1650

I broke a saddle and the transom on my old Ring 21C, the Portaproducts bracket took all the abuse I could throw at it!

Not personally. Observed one here thats been on a 25 V-bottom, Vantage, with a 3.1 L Yam for about 8-10 years. This is at the west coast, mainly open water use, needless to say it is usually pretty to very rough
The owner told me he hardly does anything to the boat in general, just a fair amount of driving each season. Never had any issues.

The Docta, single 1650 would be great but I just want to have twins.
Better handling and safer when you do long runs. You would have to be really unlucky to broke to engines at one time :-)

Porta products looks really delicate but if what you say is true it is really worth looking at :-)

Stainlessmarine also looks good :-)
