How I attached the outriggers and other items

Gertraud,
 
I have the boat on a trailer, reinforced the mounting of the outriggers with 1/4 inch aluminum angle iron, installed a depth finder and chart plotter so I would not get lost, and use a 2hp gas outboard engine.

I can go almost anywhere. If you want more pictures, let me know.

Gertraud,
 
Here are some more pictures of how I attached the outriggers and other items.

The aluminum angle iron was all 1/4 inch thick. Holes drilled in the angle iron provided attachment points through the grommets on the boat. It has proven to be very stable.

I also used the grommets with flat 1/4 aluminum strips to create a way to pull the boat onto the trailer. The top pull handle was not strong enough.

I would like to know what your people think of what I did.
