After an idyllic few days on the Norfolk Broads we’ve just returned home to the sad news that the designer Phil Bolger has ended his own life at the age of 81.
I’d like to add my tribute to the many obituaries appearing around the World Wide Web. Phil Bolger was a man who inspired many people by alternately drawing beautiful boats, utilitarian boats, and utterly original boats that could only have come from the drawing board of someone who had a special gift for ruthlessly teasing out the logic of a design brief.
He was also a superb communicator – in his articles and books he would often excite readers about the ideas behind his designs as much as the designs themselves, and this won him many, many fans. Bolger was often a controversial designer and frequently misunderstood by those who could not see past the boxy appearance of some of his more easily built designs.
I never met him, but have copies of most of his many fascinating books, which I’ve read and read again many times.

Do you need a bracket because the boat doesn't have an outboard well, or did you decide to build the bracket to get better performance (for vertical adjustment or to get the horizontal setback) or is it to get a nicer swim platform than the typical little platforms beside the outboard?
I was looking at building a bracket myself a couple years ago because I needed to add a couple inches of height to the outboard for both performance and to reduce the draft.
