All the engines Dragon Design fit to its rebuilt Luggers are Mariner 4 HP 4 Stroke engines with a long shaft and Powerdrive propeller. Consequently for whatever reason there is always an issue with the tip of the leg fin clearing the transom and allowing the leg to rise sufficiently for the lock to click into place. The second picture shows the tip of the fin hitting the underside of the transom.
To overcome this problem Dragon Design make a neat pad out of Iroko and with 4 brass screws this is screwed to the engine mounting bracket, so throwing the engine head further away from the engine bracket. Consequently this enables the lower leg fin to clear the underside of the transom.
This picture shows the clearance achieved. In this position and with an adjustment on the locking bar we have the lower led standing off the end of the keel band.
For security Dragon Design always fit engine locks to its rebuilt Lugger. These will not fit as standard but will have to be cut in order to slide the tube into the well.
Another great job achieved by Dragon Design
