Power pole install on a 2006 Montauk 170

Postby bikerGus » Mon May 17, 2021 5:11 pm

I want to install 2 eight foot power poles on engine mounts off the stern of my 2006 Montauk 170.

Transom weight would be 90 hp engine + jack plate + 2 power poles, too much weight on transom?

Requesting opinions: Should the hydraulic pumps be installed in the center console, or shoehorn the 2 power pole hydraulic pumps under the starboard rear step? Anyone have experience with power pole install?

Thanks.
