    Mid wall support idea??

    I know this question has been played out as to if its needed or not, but I was thinking of making a support system somewhat like a strut mount from a car. I was thinking about mounting a bracket on each side of the hull, the brackets would cover quite a bit of surface to dissapate(sp) the pressure..and then getting a trick looking metal support (anodized) that I can mount and UN-mount while doing engine work. Maybe something that snaps in to place and then you can thread out to give a bit of tension/support. I figure it cant hurt. Anyone do this before?

    Here is my latest midwall.

    This is no longer a Yamaha nor a SD watercraft. It's not needed. There is no pressure. You don't need to mount or dismount anything, unless you are riding a horse.

    What the hell is up with the sparkles in the ski son?
    I mocked up my midwall to just be enough to have the intermediate shaft supported. You can't move the wall at all, I have that heavy duty exhaust hose for the driveshaft, so there is no play what so ever.
    I still say, whats up with the sparkles? Glitter?

    Mark how is this holding up?? I have broken two midwall brackets and looking at doing away with it.. Not sure why they are breaking I need to check all the motor mounts and recheck alignment..

    Nothing to report so far. Not many hours on it. No leaks, and no broken clamps. It just sits there so far.

    My major concern would be either tearing a hose, or pulling out the insert. Neither seems to be happening.
