I bought a 40 foot steel sailboat with a non-working diesel engine and had to sail about 700 NM to get home. Bolting this onto the swim platform saved the day. While still a two-person job of maneuvering the boat with the 15 hp dinghy motor on the stern, we were able to safely get in and out of port. We even motored for about 24 hours during the trip when the wind was light.This bracket is built very well. I plan to keep it on the swim platform for emergencies now that I have a new electric inboard motor installed. The weld quality is superb and the material is thick. The range of adjustment (via the bolt holes) makes it very versatile. I think this bracket will last a long time.
