    That is a great mount. Make sure that you mount it so the flat plate is past the edge of the rail.

    The Mini Kota motors has a removable mount for their engines. I left the bow rail on a vee hull boat and placed a hinge in the railing, on one side of the vee setion, at the stantion point, to allow it to fold back open, with a pin at the rail end to use the motor, if you are interested i having the rails on the boat for small kids and looks.
