I have a 27 with a 150 and each of my stantions has a "pully" mount. remember if you mount on the outside, unless specially designed the mount will not be effective because the sheave will be on the outside and your line on the inside and not using the pully to reduce friction. On the inside mount there has been no problem as the line stays off deck. Catalina 27 FYI.
