    Default mounting a motor on a HB

    Just wondering if you mount the motor dead center or how much off center to counter my 250 lbs. Or don't worry about it. Thanks

    Center motor on transom and don't worry about it. Put ballast in the nose to counter your 250lbs. Zack

    As to mounting an outboard, mount it on center, but if you mount a surface-drive, it should be mounted off-center to counteract the powerful torque of the large prop at the end of a 2'+ shaft. My s-d mudmotor is mounted approx 1.5" off-center to the left on my HB for that reason. When I used my 15 hp Yamaha, it was centered on the transom.

    By the way, up here, the 20 hp Honda is considered the primo outboard for a Hudson Bay.
