Re: Need help on 27' Catalina kicker
Yeah- we just use the transom as it was designed. You should have a metal mounting plate on the inside/bottom of the opening for the clamps. So it should already be reinforced.
BUT - you might still have trouble tilting the motor all the way up if the head is too long/wide for the opening.
Here's a pic (pardon the grunge - with the drought we haven't had water at our slips for powerwashing for over a year now):
