Re: Need help on 27' Catalina kicker

Man that looks just like my boat. I think I even have the same motor! Except we have ours mounted directly on the transom plate. It does touch the water a bit - but not bad.

The previous owners had a lift-up bracket on the transom starboard of the OB well, but they didn't reinforce it very well and the OB well walls started cracking/delaminating. It seemed a bit squirrelly too with the motor offset.

Just make sure to do provide a good backing plate if you go that route.
