motor mount

Here's mine. Connects to the frame with speedrail fittings. The wood transom is adjustable and can be used with short or long shaft motors (I have both so it had to be adjustable for me)

Here's mine

It's made of 1" EMT with a peice of 1 1/2" Skidguard for the transom. A strap attaches it to a couple D-rings on the boat. The Skidguard is cut to fit a trolling motor, I can flip it over and use a long shaft (or extra long, I have both) outboard. I've never used it but if I do use it with anything bigger than a trolling motor I'll add a couple bars to connect it to the frame. The former owner was a fishing guide and said it worked great on the Yakama river.

Here's mine, an NRS seat plate sandwiched between plywood. Works on my cat or Aire Traveler. Have not figured the raft out yet, mostly because I don't need a mount on it with the other boats.

Hey Aircat;
Ive got the same NRS frame and wondered if you run a 15" short or 20" long outboard with that mount? How far below the top yoke bar is the mount, in the low/running position? Thanks..

I run a 15" shaft motor you could use a 20. You would have to keep mount up unless you run deep rivers then you could lower it or mount the bracket up higher. The way I have it mounted at its lowest setting the top of the bracket is 2" below the top of the yoke and 10" above the yoke at the highest setting.

this guy simply straps onto the back of my raft. The inner u-bolts get one strap that goes to the rear d-ring. The ones on the sides get one strap each that go forward to the frame to adjust the height of the transom. One more strap goes through the outboard handle and the back d-ring to keep the motor with me. I have a 5 horse 2-stroke that weighs 30 or so pounds. Simple and cheap. Thought about building something that goes back to the frame but meh, a 5 horse will push on the raft with less than 100 lbs force. No worries.
