I see bolts sticking through the transom. I assume you got your stainless marine mini bracket, or is it a jack plate?
With the full stern, I would advise a full mock up with the engine on the plate or mini bracket...before you get too far along. Either the jack plate or stainless mini bracket are gonna limit your trim and tilt range due to either the cowling hitting the hull or rigging cables getting pinched. It's easier to take corrective action at this stage(if you have an issue) than to figure out you have a problem after it's painted.
Please don't take my post as being a dick, i'm just trying to point out potential issues before you get to the finish work stage.
