Ah, I was just about to ask on another of your pics if there were wave interference with the OB mount, I see there is. :) Maybe a fairing forward would help.

Yes - that's my thinking too, but haven't got around to trying it yet. 

If making a new bracket, I think this could be largely solved by angling the forward face down rather than it being flat and vertical. In other respects it works well. It is low enough down that I can get away with a standard / short shaft engine (cheaper and easier to transport than a long shaft one), I can tip the engine over sideways and leave it on the mount while sailing as you can see, so it is always there ready to go if I need it, and it is a good strong fixing which seems to hold it rigid (unlike on a cross-beam).
