Titan motor mount

Our "P" Mono race boat is ready for the water again. Last season we broke the motor mount loose for the second time and snapped the drive shaft.

The old system was an ETTI motor mount for the front of the motor that was epoxied to the carbon fiber hull, and a Williams mount for the rear of the motor that was mounted to blocks that were bolted to the bottom. The rear mount was good, but the front mount broke free twice. The second time added some lightweight fiberglass cloth and epoxy - still broke loose.

So the new method is two V shaped aluminum brackets that bolt to the motor mount and to the bottom of the hull. It is much stronger now and if that breaks it will have to take the bottom of the hull along for the ride.
