Thanks for the wealth of information on brackets in the reference section, you've saved me a lot of time! I sold my 25 Outrage and bought a 1985 27 Cuddy with the original SeaDrives. They look pretty good and actually run really well, but I am going to repower this boat which entails installing a bracket. I have looked at all four bracket manufactures listed in the reference article, they seem fairly similar in design and cost. Anyone preferences?

Armstrong Bracket.
Just my two cents.

Armstrong. I put one on my boat and I could not be happier. Color is a perfect match to the hull.

Bill Pottter, The gentleman who made/owned SeaCraft brand boats from 1968-1979, is now the designer and owner of the Seamark outboard engine bracket.

This bracket is made of all fiberglass and composite materials. It looks the same as an aluminum bracket but will never chip paint/oxidize, and is much much lighter.

I bought a CMC manual bracket that weighs 22 lbs. I have not opened the box yet and could easily return it. How much does an Armstrong bracket weigh? I need a bracket that would be appropriate for a 60 hp 4-stroke on a 1977 sport 15.

I have a 1988 Outrage 20 and am thinking about a bracket. I would like to be able to keep the bow down a bit more in a head sea and plane at lower speeds. Anyone have any before and after comments on their bracket?
