    I always feel la bit uncomfortable about using rudder fittings for anything other than the rudder. They are a crucial part of the boat, and I don’t like to do anything that might contribute to an untimely failure.
    Is it not possible to mount the outboard on the transom with some timber pads for the clamps – off centre?

    I most certainly wouldn’t use the pintles to carry such a weight! 5HP sounds like too much weight anyway…2-2.5hp is more than adequate. Read the many posts on the subject.
