I am mounting a 9.9-HP four-cycle motor on my 1996 Outrage 19. The fixed mount aluminum bracket sets the motor back 14 inches. I am looking for the following recommendations:

What is the correct kicker height? Should I mount the engine so the cavitation plate is 1-inch to 2-inch below the hull?

The engine is on the starboard side, do I need to use through-hole bolts, or can I use lag bolts?

Should I use a plywood spacer on the inside or outside, to protect the gelcoat?

What size bolts are needed, 1/2-inch? Or. is 3/8-inch adequate?

I'm doing a 6 hp kicker on my 1993 Outrage so I'll be watching this thread for help also.

Can I ask why you are using a set back bracket?

Is there a reason the kicker can't be bolted directly to the transom?

I rough measured and it looks like a 20 inch shaft is the correct length.

HJ, The 1996 Outrage only has the transom cut low for 1 engine space. I think the classics have a better setup.

I also have a 20" shaft length kicker. If you mount the engine to close to the full height transom, it would be difficut to rotate the motor out of the water. The fixed mount has 14" of setback to allow for rotating the engine up.

OK What model bracket did you buy?

HJ, It is a powder coated, welded aluminum bracket made by North River Boats. It is the nicest looking and most economical fixed bracket I've found. I can email you more info if you are interested.
