It's exciting to put a new engine in. The feel good factor is pretty high. Good looking job.

Did you weld those bolts on the underside of the motor mount plates?
Your mount definitely looks sturdier than the 4 wood lag screws that Bayliner used.

I Made threads in the 14 mm stainless steel and secured the bolts with Loctite 603, some real strong stuff.
I made these mounts to prevent the shock absorbers from sagging in the new stringers.
