Default Fixture for drilling holes in transom

I need to drill a set of motor mounting holes in my transom. I have drilled them by hand in the past but they never come out perfect. Does anyone know where I can find a jig to help align the holes? I would really like to borrow or rent one, but will buy one if have to. Thanks

I would just go up to the local shop and ask to borrow one in the parking lot. You will need to draw a line straight down the middle of the transom. If you have that done already and bring your own drill, 1/2" drill bit, and clamps they will be more inclined to oblige.

Just looked at the price of those things, they are much more money then i thought they would be. All manufactures have used the same patterns since the 70s.
