Engine Mounts

Henley’s have long established that engines installed in boats are under significant forces attributed to thrust and various sea conditions. The differences between a power boat and a yacht are obvious in that the yacht could be motor sailing which places significant stress on the mounts when the vessel is healing between 15 to 30 degrees in contrast to a power boat punching into a seaway at 20 knots+.
All the applied forces in either installation are significant and if ones mounts allow the engine to move to excessive tolerances then loads are applied to gearbox output bearings and gearbox seals, flex couplings, shaft seals, shafts and shaft bearings that exceed the design tolerances of the various individual components in ones driveline. Isoflex Marine Flexible shaft couplings and flexible engine mounts are built to contain excessive tolerances / loads that can be applied in normal use.
Following are some of the advantages that one can benefit from installing IsoFlex marine engine mounts in their drive train.
