Yamaha T9.9 question
My sailboat's transom is raked at a 56 degree angle, and the Yamaha T9.9 doesn't have enough adjustment to compensate for that rake. So I am making a wedge to put between the transom and my new Garelick heavy duty bracket.
Unfortunately, my motor is in FL and I am in NY, so I can't just go look at it.
My question: Can the T9.9 be mounted on a bracket that is completely vertical, i.e., at a 90 degree angle to the water?
The reason I'm asking is that the shop manual shows the bracket at a 12 degree angle from the vertical.
There are 4 holes that allow the angle of the motor to be adjusted by about 4 degrees for each hole.
I can't figure out, by looking at the diagram, if the bracket has to be at least 12 degrees from vertical, or if that is the maximum angle of rake that can be compensated for.
Can anyone shed some light on this question for me? I'm sure it's obvious to anyone who has done this before.
