    Hull Liner under motor mounts

    I was just looking at some stuff in the Yamaha manual and came across the motor mounts. I noticed that looking from the rear of the ski to the front, the right side of the motor has what they call Hull Liners. These are the aluminum piece that fits under the motor mounts. On the left hand side, there are none of these liners.
    Why is that just one side has it and the other doesn't? Anybody have any ideas?

    I've always thought they're meant to handle the extra stress once that heavy pipe starts bouncing around.

    I thought they were for added strenght... the EFI boats have them on both sides.

    Thanks guys, we were talking about it today as well. We wondered if the EFI boats had 4, because I put them under all 4 of my motor mounts. I thought it may have something to do with lining the motor up or something in that sense. But I think its for keeping the motor mount from rubbing through the hull. I saw it in the manual as well. Just wondered, good points from everyone. Thanks.
