Do any of you guys have a kicker on your 190? I have seen a beautiful SS bracket from Tanner which comes in two lengths 6.5" and 13". I like the 6.5" as it's more compact and esthetically better looking, but Tanner can't guarantee me that the kicker cover will clear the transom. I think it will but at $600 bucks I have to be sure.

On another note what is the recommended length for the kicker 15" or 20". I'm looking at a 9.9 hp eng, I think that should be sufficient, any comments appreciated.

Thks,

Fred

This depends greatly on how you expect the kicker to be mounted and rotate ie above the transom and into the boat or completely outboard and below.

The best starting point is to make a cardboard mock-up and get details of the kicker or measure it from your local shop

Do not underestimate the bend radius of cables and fuel lines when the kicker is up and tilted and how it will connect to you main for steering

I recommend getting the power lift if you are going for a 9.9hp as it will make life easier, safer and you will be more inclined to use it

There are some good reference articles if you search that will give you an overall idea.

Got a stainless steel bracket. Also used 1" starboard material between bracket and the gelcoat.
Used the kicker motor from my old 170 montauk (6hp merc/tohatsu).
