Well, I got exactly what I ordered, but somehow I ordered the wrong size. But I'll make it work. 

It's long enough, but not wide enough.

Here you go, or there may be a Metals Supermarket near you, the one in Knoxville stocked 5052 Aluminum sheeting.

Ok, it's been too long. I need to get something back out on the water. What's a good source for a small sheet of aluminum, 3"x24" that's the thickness of the transom? Looks like it was @0.100"

Anyone have a suggestion or pattern for a steering bracket?






Got a pic of where it'd need to mount?

We are going to do the breaking in on Serenity. Got the old 64 Evinrude off and the new Zuke mounted today. All I need now is an extended steering bracket to clear the cable steering.
