NO,no, the picture is wrong, i have a csy 44 , and the engine bed have 2 stringers , one in the port side and the other one in starboard,the stringers in the csy hare very well made , consist of a long piece of douglas wood incapsulated in heavy fiberglass, the perkins rest in this 2 stringers by engine mounts screwed directly in the glass , not good idea in a 360 roll, i take out the engine for a overhaul and made a steel plate for each side , the plate is L CONFIGURATION , we cut about 2 centimeters off the top for the stringer and reglassed , now the plate rest in the stringer in a L FORM , we drill about 6 holes along the stringer and fit the steel plate with heavy bolts and nuts and a backing plate , the engine mounts now rest in the steel plate with a screw pass in the plate and underneath with a bolt , and the nut under the plate, remenber we cut the top of the stringer , so we have about 1, 5 cm off diference betwen the plate and the stringer , now the engine run smoother , and is safely in place , and thanks to the heavy construction of the CSY 44 , no strees points. i hope is clear for you, i try to the prepare a picture soon.

Thanks , that's clear - sounds good - much stronger.

My initial understanding was the reference to "steel plate" which in the normally accepted definition is flat.

Whereas "angle iron" is what was used to connect the engine mountings to the stringer bearers.
