Here is a cardboard mock-up of the OB bracket I am adding to my 1990 GB 32.
Roughly 17" by 6", it will be made of 2 thicknesses of 3/4" Starboard Marine Lumber, which should be plenty strong for a 2.5 hp motor. 2 big U-bolts will attach it to the 1.5" stanchion above the transom, so no new holes have to be drilled into my pretty boat! You might be able to see the faint outline of the stanchion position on the photo. The dinghy, mounted on tilt-up Weaver davits, will stand a bit further away from the transom, but that should not be a problem. I also rigged up a 2-part hoisting tackle on the boom, which uses an old mainsheet fiddle block with cam cleat, so I can easily lift the motor on or off the mount and lock it in place, hanging off the tackle, if necessary. That also meant adding a $30 permanent hoisting strap to the motor, which was a bit of a hassle to get to stay on properly!
