the OMC Stringer stern drive setup is not mounted to the transom. In fact, unless I'm mistaken the transom is just a thin fibreglass skin. There is no real transom to mount an outboard on. Besides, IMHO, it'd be a shame to hack into the rear deck of '64 Sweet 16 or Sportsman. It's one of the coolest boat designs ever made!

  I have been looking at an 1964 Evinrude 16' boat that is for sale. The boat appears to be in good condition, but there is possibly some issues with the motor. This boat has an inboard 90hp 2 cycle engine, and what I really wanted to know is how difficult it would be (if even possible) to retrofit an outboard motor on this type of boat just in case the inboard proves to be beyond repair. Any responses would be appreciated. Thanks!
