For any of you who have switched to an electric motor, like a Torqueedo, did you mount it on the same motor mount as your gasoline motor?  I have the GB motor mount with the pulleys for mechanical advantage, but it is very stiff to operate even with the relatively heavy 8 HP Tohatsu mounted, and I’m concerned that a Torqueedo would not have enough weight to let it be lowered.  I’d welcome any input.
