Re: Garelick Motor Mounts - Your Experiences

The Garhauer is not cheap; mine was $392 delivered.

Defender lists the super-duper Garelick (303618) at $380.

I'm making my inside backing plate from 1/2" marine ply; I think the same thickness of StarBoard would be enough.

Re: Garelick Motor Mounts - Your Experiences

This is for two stroke only, I used the 4 stroke version since my motor is heavier, but you mentioned yours is 100lbs.

Thanks, Jackson. The CatDir site said they had re-engineered the mounts with bronze bushings. Not sure if they mean all of them or just the heavy-duty one.

I am considering some sort of retaining strap to hold it in the raised position. Even though the mount is beefy, it is still a lot of weight attached to a 12"x12" area of my transom. I'd like some kind of connection to prevent it from bouncing.

FYI - the vertical rails (that mount to the transom) are 3" longer on the heavy-duty model. They stick down lower to distribute the weight better. I'm not installing an outside backing plate, just an inside one.

Re: Garelick Motor Mounts - Your Experiences

Bingo, Paul, you hit her right on the head. Couldn't get the page to load, but I read your description. This was exactly what I was thinking about.

Garelick 71056 Auxiliary Outboard Motor Bracket-71056 Garelick

Although all the others mentioned here look great, I think this baby will do the trick for $164 and change, plus s/h.

1/2" backer, got it. Got too busy last evening to get inside and take a look. Heading down again tonite after work.

Garelick it is.

Thanks again, everybody, for your responses.

Re: Garelick Motor Mounts - Your Experiences

I have the motor mount (4 spring version) from CD on my C25 with a 9.9 Merc Bigfoot at 108 lbs. It works great. I did put a spacer board on it for the motor clamps and bolts just to use up some of the space. The 9.9 4 stroke was a bit deeper on the transom brackets than my previous 7.5 2 stroke.

Excellent price Carl, you can't go wrong with that. I had to pay double for the 4 stroke version. Hope it all works out for you.

Re: Garelick Motor Mounts - Your Experiences

Thanks. Got some expert help, so we can get it all together right.

It'll be so nice to sail this year the right way: with the motor out of the water.

Thanks guys.
