They need to be reinforced on the newer V-drive boats too...

I let a friend of mine weld a cross of two rectangular aluminium profiles 20mm x 30mm, so i basically have two diagonal reinforcements welded together that run from corner to corner and corner to corner, painted them black and screwed them onto the engine side of the plastic dividers. Now the only thing in doubt are the small u-brackets in the lower corners that the divider sits in, maybe I'll change that for one full u-profile from front to back. Sorry no photos yet, first real test will be today.
