Default Internal Motor Support for Electric Motors

Has anyone out there designed or built an internal motor support? My Vermont Belle 1300 has a very thin firewall and with the heavy Himaxx motor and gearbox, it flexes the firewall and puts heavy loading on the firewall. Have those of you who have Vermont Belle's found this to be a problem?
Thanks,
Frank

Frank,

Don't hesitate to reinforce the firewall if you feel it needs it.

With your brushless setup, a little extra weight will make no difference.
