My transom is too thin for the motor that I just bought( or I guess you can say the screw clamps are too short) Anyways, I was considering attaching a board to the transom to give it extra width. Is this acceptable? Is there another cure for this problem?

I would do the same but I would make the board as large as I could to cover as large of an area as possible. This would transfer as much of the load/force to a greater area, rather than just the center of the transom.

Do what wave warrior suggested. He bet me to it. The bolts are extra insurance.
