There is a new and extendable holdout arm built to five different lengths (46cm to 60cm) (61cm to 76cm) (92cm to 106cm) (107cm to 121cm) (122 to 137cm).

Swivel Outboard Motor Mounting Bracket.

This ingenious Insta-lock dinghy swivel bracket has 2 positions: 45 and 90 degrees. This bracket will work for both inflatables (45 degree position) and Hard shell dinghy’s (90 degree position). It ‘s designed to allow the outboard motor to remain on the dinghy while it is being raised into position on the swim platform. Without the swivel bracket the crew would have to remove the outboard motor from the dinghy and store it somewhere on the boat in an upright position and secure it, which is quite often a problem. Now with the Insta-Lock swiveling engine mount, the dinghy bracket swivels and the motor remains nearer to vertical on the dinghy without having to be removed. Not having to remove the motor will also avoid any spilling of fuel or oil and the risk of heavy manual handling mishaps.
