You can see the blue strap coming forward from the mount and to the frame. Best pic I could find

What are people using to tether their motors in case of a flip? Just some webbing, a small cable? Anyone had a motor come off an upside down boat?

This mount works great for trolling motors using an anchor system frame. Carrying a marine battery is not so fun however.

Get the biggest and strongest mount you can buy. It might seem weird paying as much for the mount as you did the motor but trust me your motor is only as good as its mount and transom. So obviously motors are easier to mount and steer for a cataraft than a raft. Get a large aluminum or whatever plate and mount it or build it into the frame in the rear. Buy the biggest Garelick 4 stroke, even if you have a 2, transom, plus the strongest safely cable you can find. I use a short shaft with this transom and it works fine. Longer shaft engines are nice too. This way I have it down and for the shallows or rapids and it's very easy to bring up. I recommend using a 4-6'strap to attach the engine to the frame as low as you can. This will keep it from slamming around in big rapids when not in use. I use a Nissan 8hp and it works great for booze cruzin with 11 boats, plowing through big rapids, BIG, and of course why we all have motors... The last day in Cataract!!
