    We have a customer who needs a sophisticated auxilliary outboard mount for one of our RIBs.
    The boat is an Explorer SPORTS 575 - see - which has an Evinrude ETEC main engine. As an auxilliary and for fishing etc the customer wants us to fit an 8-10 hp fourstroke on a rise and fall auxilliary mount. However, these outboards are so heavy that the rise and fall mount is too much effort.
    Do any of you know of a mount which has a gas strut or power assistance?
    We are based in the UK, but can ship from elsewher if the product is good enough.
    Good Boating Hugh M.
