GV11-is it okay to trailer with outboard attached?

I'm finally getting an outboard for my gv11. My question is: Is the transom (as built per plans) strong enough for me to tow the boat on a trailer with the outboard attached?

GV11 Seat mod help

First time builder here with a few questions: I've got the plans and have ordered the wood but I'm thinking I want to make the seat boxes. 1. How do I make the box seats? I've seen that many have done it, but I don't understand how it is done. 2. Approximately how much extra 6mm plywood will I need ...
