I have recenty purchased a Mercury outboard for my Plus S Wayfarer and have the normal Wayfarer bracket to fit on the back…Can anyone please let me know exactly where the bracket needs to be positionned? Many thanks..14/07/2009 at 7:36 am #838112/10/2009 at 2:44 pm #8659bfennemaMember
I am no expert by any means but I have heard it said that the +S (I have one myself) is not meant to have an outboard bracket fitted with regard to the strength of the transom.
Perhaps I even read it in the Wayfarer handbook not sure.
Perhaps somebody more qualified than me could confirm or deny if it is safe to fit an outboard bracket on +1S ?

If true that really is a design fault!!14/10/2009 at 7:25 pm #8662Colin ParkstoneParticipant
The +S was made for the racing market in the Wayfarer Class to have a GRP version of the wood boats.
It was not constructed for cruising so it was not a ” Design Fault “

I have never heard that the transom on a plus S is not strong enough for an outboard bracket. I find no such reference in my Wayfarer Book.
If it’s good enough for the rudder then I can see no reason why it’s not good enough for an outboard bracket.
Other threads on this forum go into fitting a bracket in some depth.
The optimum position will to some extent depend on the outboard.
