Someone posted information on a curved outboard mounting bracket for curved transom that would work with the old 13' w/ 15" transom to allow for 20" shaft.

I can't seem to find it. I know there is an idea in the Cetacea section with 2 metal brackets, but that is not what I was looking for.

I thought the poster said it was available from West Marine, but I can't find it there either.

I think that most people have inserted a wedge of some type. Cook Manufacturing Company (CMC) makes a 2-degree transom wedge, and you could use several to get the angle you need. See http://www.cook-mfg.com

I found an answer to my own question. Hopefully this may be useful to others with 13' whalers and want to use the 20" shaft motors. Not sure of price though.

TH marine does not sell to public but found it at another site.

$79.99

I will add to OEM section as others with 13 whalers may not see this here.

Ideally, the post should be under Repairs/Modifications (that is where it has been discussed several times before). I thought that your question related to the problem of attaching a straight piece of aluminum to the curved transom in your 13. I do not believe you have answered that question yet, but since you posed the question and answered the question it seems like a logical place to end the discussion :)

I have been using the mini jacker on my boat for about a year now. It seems to work well except for a little extra cavitation at wot. You have to make sure that your transom is in good shape because it does put excess strain on it. My setup inclides a 62' 13 with a 89' 25 evinrude.
