It carries a 3 horsepower motor. The back plate is made of cutting board. The PVC is conduit PVC. The 2x4s are 2x4s. I run straps from the frame two the ends of the arms. When I tighten them I can keep decent tension to hold the motor out of the water if I need to.
It would be much more ghetto if you had used OSB!
I like the design. Copy the tubes with thinwall 1.25" EMT conduit (have an electrician bend them for you on a hydraulic bender with a case of beer) and it would have a great lifespan.
