Author Topic:   150 SPORT: Auxiliary Motor

My friend is looking to put a 5-HP kicker on her 2003 150 SPORT. She was wondering if anyone has a kicker on their 150 sport and if they were any recommendations on installation, brackets. She did look at the diagram on the reference. She doesn't have the wood diagram for her boat (transom area)

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Here is the complete diagram for the 2002 150.
You'll find on Boston Whaler Site many other documentation.

Note carefully on that drawing that item "ZA" was not added until the 2004 model year, for the optional swim ladder. It is not in 2003 models.

The ZA says its phenolic. Is phenolic just hard plastic? could it handle a bracket? Mahalo

I would like to reiterate what Moe mentioned (that the ZA -Phenolic transom piece was not included in the 2003 model). I just went and checked my diagram for my 2003 150 sport and it is identical to the one in alpha's post other that it DID NOT include the ZA piece of phenolic in the transom. My diagram # is 1689779 and is dated 1-10-03 as is the one in the previous post - and it does not include the ZA piece.
I researched the same thing the summer before last when I was looking to install a dive ladder on the boat and after some research I decided to mount the dive ladder (gralick) on the 19"x42" piece of 1-1/2" plywood (S) as far away from the motor as possible. I have been very happy with the set up and I would probably suggest the same for mounting a kicker motor if necessary. Hope this helps and good luck.

So what is the base material in this particular phenolic application?

The phenolic is Whaleboard.
You can cut threads in this material and it's said that these threads will be as strong (or as weak) as in Aluminium.
