On my scratchbuilt 1:32 scale Elco 80' PT Boat (30" lolng), I used one of the frames as a motor mount. I used 1/8" plywood for the frames, and most of them had the center cut out. I left most of the center in the one used for the motor mount, just drilled the appropriate holes for the shaft and mounting screws. On several other models, I bolt the motor to an aluminum L shaped mount that is screwed to wood glued into the bottom of the hull.
