Transom Brackets For Small Outboards: Fulton Rates Best

In our test of eight transom-mounted brackets, the fulton was the easiest to operate. garelick's model for motors up to 20 hp earns runner-up honors, and omc's unit deserves consideration..

outboard motor bracket for sailboat

The most common form of auxiliary propulsion for small sailboats is the outboard motor. On some boats, it is mounted in a well forward of the transom. Such arrangements conceal and protect the motor but may not allow it to be tilted up to get the prop out of the water when sailing. More common, perhaps is the mounting of a bracket on the transom. These generally have two positions—up and down—for lowering the motor’s prop into the water, and raising it. Brackets should be strong, durable, and, most importantly, easy to operate without having to hang out over the transom.

Transom Brackets For Small Outboards: Fulton Rates Best

What Was Tested We rounded up eight brackets from five manufacturers—Fulton, Garelick, Triangle, Minn Kota and Outboard Motor Corp. (OMC). Prices ranged from $95 to $380. All are manually operated, except for the electrically powered Minn Kota.

Early on we discovered that your choice depends not only on the outboard’s horsepower and weight but also on whether it’s a two- or four-stroke. We understood why weight and horsepower make a difference but weren’t sure why a four-stroke would require a special, and subsequently more expensive, bracket.

“It’s the increased torque and thrust of a four-stroke,” said Jayson Klade, a Fulton Industries technical representative. The four-stroke’s greater force imposes more stress on the bracket; therefore it needs to be stronger than a bracket for a two-stroke.

How We Tested The main criteria for evaluation was ease of use, but also considered was the ease of assembly and mounting, quality of materials, price and instructions. We noted how sturdy each bracket was by shaking the motor from side to side and fore and aft while placing the bracket in several positions—a “wiggle test,” if you will. We also measured the range of motion, or vertical distance, of each.

To test, we collaborated with our sister publication, Powerboat Reports, whose editor owns a 21′ walkaround with a large outboard; his interest was mounting a small backup “kicker.”We had a local machine shop weld up a stainless steel plate that could be bolted to his boat’s transom and used to mount the brackets.

Three motors were used—a 2000 Nissan 5-hp four-stroke, a 1980’s-era 9.9-hp Mercury two-stroke and a 1970’s 15-hp Evinrude. We hauled the boat, mounted each bracket and tried all three outboards on each one.

What Was Found The three Garelick models, the four-stroke Fulton model and the OMC bracket included 3″ bolts; the other Fulton bracket came with 2-1/4″ bolts, too short for the 2-1/2″ thick transom. This was annoying as no one likes to interrupt a project with a trip to the hardware store.

Minn Kota and Triangle included no hardware.

Instructions that came with most of the brackets were fairly good, advising where to mount them so the outboard could perform properly. Minn Kota failed to offer this information, and the Triangle came with no directions.

All but one bracket—the two-stroke Fulton—offered clearance between the motor and the bracket handle when tilted. Most used some sort of spring as its primary lifting and lowering mechanism. All except the Triangle and Minn Kota included raised strips of polypropylene or stainless steel on the mounting boards to prevent the motor from sliding off.

We were surprised that OMC and Garelick’s instructions advised that the motor be taken off before trail-ering the boat. We figured the brackets would face much more stress at sea than rolling down the highway. But representatives from both companies told us otherwise. A bump in the road can cause more damage than a large wave, they said.

“The G-forces are greater on the road,” said Dean Devore, OMC director of product development.

Only one bracket, the four-stroke Garelick, came with a safety harness to prevent the motor from sinking to the bottom if it came off the bracket.

All Fulton and Garelick models offered at least four levels to adjust outboard trim. Two of the three Garelicks—the up-to-8 hp and up-to-20 hp models—included flange-type brackets that allow you to convert the unit from a negative transom setup (an angle greater than 90°) to a positive transom (an angle less than 90°, seen mostly on sailboats). But the conversion involves swapping the brackets, reversing their position and adjusting the springs. Each of the five adjustment holes represents a 7° increment.

With most of the coil-spring models, you must be very careful while operating the bracket when it is not mounted on the boat. The force of the springs is so great that you could seriously injure yourself if you trigger the release with a finger or hand inside the mechanism. Garelick’s instructions provide several warnings; Fulton’s instructions do not.

Fulton: Two-strokes up to 10 hp We found this model extremely difficult to raise, so much so that we had to put our left knee on top of the transom and our right foot in the motor well to gain enough leverage to move it. The difficulty stems from the unit’s lack of springs and the fact that you must simultaneously push the one-arm lever aft and up, which is very awkward. Lowering the unit wasn’t much easier.

Fulton representative Jayson Klade said the company recognizes this problem and may discontinue this model because of it. He said he has had calls from older owners who have had trouble moving a 2-hp outboard on this bracket.

Transom Brackets For Small Outboards: Fulton Rates Best

The unit itself is solidly built, with an anodized aluminum bracket and a polypropylene mounting board. However, the bolts used to secure this board to the bracket were rusted. We suggest replacing them with stainless steel.

This was the only bracket that presented clearance problems. The Evinrude 15’s steering arm hit the bracket’s lever handle, and the Mercury’s choke smacked it when the motor was tilted.

Bottom Line: Not recommended, mainly due to the difficulty we encountered raising and lowering the unit.

Fulton: Two- and Four-strokes up to 30 hp This model, also anodized aluminum, was much easier to operate than its little brother, due to its four springs, 1-3/4″ wider stance and larger, two-arm lever. With all three engines, we needed only one hand to operate it.

However, we found two drawbacks. First, installation requires shimming (placing a 1″- to 2″-thick block of wood or aluminum between it and the transom) if mounted below the rubrail and on a flat transom, such as ours. Without a shim, the lever handle will hit the transom. In addition, shimming may require longer mounting bolts. Second, the springs obstruct eight of the 12 mounting holes, making installation more difficult. (Use a long screwdriver to bend the spring ends out of the way.) Fulton recognizes this design flaw and is working on it, said Klade.

Bottom Line: Recommended. The easiest to operate.

Garelick: Two-strokes up to 8 hp The body of this unit is stainless steel. Its four torsion springs helped us lift and lower it easily. You can also lessen the spring tension by cutting up to three of the four springs if lowering the bracket is too difficult due to the use of a light motor.

Click here to view the Transom Brackets Value Guide.

Our main complaint with this bracket was the sloppy play (fore and aft) in the up position encountered during the wiggle test. Even with its locking mechanism engaged, the bracket afforded too much play.

Bottom Line: Easy to use but its sloppy play is a drawback.

Garelick: Two-strokes to 20 hp This is essentially the same bracket as the smaller Garelick, except its longer body gives greater vertical travel, and it includes eight springs instead of four. We encountered no wobbling and found it to be even easier to operate than the smaller Garelick.

Bottom Line: Recommended. Only the Fulton four-stroke model is easier to operate.

Garelick: Two- and Four-strokes up to 30 hp This model is well-made and the only one equipped with two locks and a safety harness. Unfortunately, we had great difficulty lowering all three outboards.

The motors were not heavy enough to overcome the unit’s spring-loaded tension. Garelick says it becomes easier after you get the feel for it. We never did. The company does not advise cutting the springs on this model, so we have little confidence that it will work with motors up to 15 hp. We’d only use it for heavier motors, such as those from 20 to 30 hp.

We also discovered that this unit requires shimming to be installed on a boat with a flat transom. (Like the small Fulton, we were only able to mount it because the stainless steel plate acted as a shim.) The directions do point this out: “Add a 1″ shim if the release handle is at or below the rubrail or the top of the transom.” But some of the diagrams show a successful mounting on a flat transom. This is misleading and confusing to the installer.

Note: Garelick listed the wrong telephone number in the directions. The correct number is listed at the end of this story.

Bottom Line: Recommended only for use with engines from 20 hp to 30 hp.

OMC: Two- and Four-strokes up to 15 hp Unlike the Fulton and Garelick brackets, this model operates with a gas-filled cylinder. It was easy to operate, accomplished by moving a small lever with a red handle to positions marked “raise” or “lower.” To lower, simply jerk the motor up slightly and push down; to raise, push down on the motor, and the lift unlocks and rises. However, unlike most of the others, the OMC does not have multiple positions for engine trim—only two, up and down.

“We’ve found that most people only use one level anyway,” said OM’s Devore. “Rarely do they want to change settings.” For $380, the most expensive motor lift in our group, the consumer might prefer this option. (The device’s shock alone costs about $100, according to Devore.)

Like Garelick, OMC warns against trailer travel with the engine on the boat. It goes a step further, though, advising the owner to attach a rope to the engine in “choppy water,” suggesting to us that the manufacturer is not very confident of its product. “Perhaps that could be worded better; we are just being overly cautious,” said Devore.

OMC recently introduced a larger bracket made of die-cast aluminum (the model we tested is a combination of die-cast and stamped aluminum) for outboard motors up to 125 pounds that retails for $380.

Bottom Line: Works very well, but price is a drawback.

Triangle: Up to 10 hp This unit came without hardware or directions. Its wooden mounting board is susceptible to rotting because raw wood is exposed on the inside of its four mounting holes. In addition, we couldn’t safely attach the 9.9-hp Mercury because the 7″-wide mounting board was too narrow. The circular pads of the engine’s bolts hung off the plate. With no directions, we weren’t sure whether this bracket could hold four-stroke engines. We called Triangle, and a representative ruled them out.

Another concern is the spring on this stainless steel unit; it failed to hold the weight of the Nissan and Mercury motors. We discovered this abruptly when the Nissan came crashing down after we had released the locking mechanism. Needless to say, we believe that this bracket needs a stronger spring.

Bottom Line: Not recommended, due to its weak spring, very narrow and unprotected wooden mounting board.

Minn Kota: Two- and Four-strokes up to 20 hp This was the only electrically powered (12V) bracket tested. We found installation easy, the directions simple and the motor, which turns a jack screw to raise and lower the mounting board, worked effectively.

Even though this unit is listed in the West Marine catalog, it is not intended for saltwater use, which explains the steel components (only the mounting board is anodized aluminum). Minn Kota may come out with a saltwater version in 2002, said spokesman Dave Golladay.

We thought the electrical connections were inadequate (for salt- or freshwater use), especially the two spade connectors that attach to the unit’s motor. They are directly exposed to the water.

The silicone meant to protect the motor’s housing was sloppily applied, hanging off and failing to cover certain spots.

The Minn Kota flunked our wiggle test. The two arms attached to the jack screw don’t offer enough support. We would attach a third arm—there’s room.

The jack screw is a potential problem, too, because it sticks out when the unit is up, leaving it open to be struck by the corner of a dock or other solid structure. Golladay said, “These are all very good points. We’re trying to enhance that product line. Our primary focus is trolling motors.”

Bottom Line: Not recommended. An automatic bracket is a great idea, and one we’d like to see developed, but the Minn Kota’s subpar materials and construction make it difficult to recommend.

Conclusion The Fulton four-stroke bracket is our top choice for any size outboard. It does require some shimming, but its solid construction and ease of use place it ahead of the pack.

Our runner-up, the Garelick (up to 20 hp) was extremely easy to use, and it’s $60 less than the Fulton. But it’s limited to two-stroke engines, which leads us to this point: Because four-strokes are becoming more popular, it does not make sense for manufacturers to continue producing brackets for two-stroke use only. We think it only confuses the consumer. (For instance, we’ve received reader letters asking why some motor lifts are restricted to two-stroke motors.)

Case in point: A 5-hp four-stroke does not produce as much torque as a 20-hp two-stroke, and yet the Garelick (up to 20 hp) restricts all four-strokes.

The OMC bracket was also impressive, but you have to be willing to pay. The smallest Garelick worked well, but its failure in the wobble test is a concern.

We don’t think you should consider the other models because they had, in our opinion, too many flaws.

I complained and they gave me a discount on another one they said better modle. It did the same thing. Not sure what to get now that I purchaesed a 6 hp Tahatsu that is heavier 55lbs.

Anyone know where I can buy a gas cyclinder for the OMC bracket

Can You Put An Outboard Motor On A Sailboat – How To Video

outboard motor bracket for sailboat

When you are docking or sailing without wind, a motor may come in handy. I have used and worked on outboard motors for a long time and hope to answer your questions with this article.

You can mount an outboard motor to a sailboat using an auxiliary motor bracket. This bracket is designed to lift and lower the motor to the desired height in the water. Make sure the bracket is rated for the weight of the motor.

This article will discuss all things about outboard motors and how to utilize them on your boats. There are a lot out there and a bunch of questions to answer.

How Do You Attach An Outboard Motor To A Sailboat?

An outboard motor bracket is required to mount an engine to your sailboat’s transom. The size of the bracket will depend on the weight of the engine. The bracket is mounted to the transom using bolts and a special adhesive.

The easiest way to mount an outboard to your boat will be to take it out of the water first! This will ensure that anything you drop does not sink to the bottom of the ocean. This will also give you the option to work right side up. If you tried to do it on the water, you would be working upside down hanging over the transom.

The outboard motor bracket will make your life so much easier when it comes to using your engine. The bracket allows you to move your engine in and out of the water with ease. Torsion springs in the bracket will counterbalance the motor weight making it feel super light when raising and lowering it. Most brackets have multiple positions as well, making it easy to get your desired depth.

There are a few things to remember when mounting your bracket.

  • Mount the motor bracket on the correct side . Which side do you prefer to sit on and control your boat from? Your engine should be on the same side.
  • Measure twice! You need to compare the length of your outboard to the height of your bracket mount. Measure when the bracket is in the up and down position. You don’t want your prop out of the water when the mount is down but you also don’t want it dragging the bottom.
  • Check the throttle handle of your engine in relation to the top of your transom . When the engine is lowered you want to make sure you can still operate the throttle without banging your arm on the transom. If you need to increase the distance of the bracket from the transom try a set-back plate. Some outboards will tip forward to remove the prop from the water, making sure it won’t hit the transom.
  • Try to utilize a backing plate on the inside of the cockpit if possible. This will help create a more even pressure against the transom between the bracket and the backing plate. If you can’t find one it should be ok without one, but no guarantees.
  • Always attach a safety cable. This will keep your engine from sinking to the bottom of the water if, for some rare reason, it did detach from the bracket.

For a more in-depth look at using an outboard bracket, take a look at this video. They replace their old one with a new one. It’s a great video on all of the steps.

If you don’t have a motor for your auxiliary motor bracket, keep reading to find out more about outboard and inboard motors.

Is A 2-Stroke Or 4-Stoke Outboard Faster?

2 stroke motors use two-piston strokes to generate a single revolution of the crankshaft, while a 4 stroke motor has to do 4 strokes per revolution. This will generate more power and speed than a 4-stroke motor of the same horsepower.

When it comes to outboard motors, 2-stroke and 4-stroke motors are a common sight. They both have their positives and negatives of course, but one may be better than the other.

2-stroke motors use two-piston strokes to produce a single revolution of the crankshaft. The crankshaft is what drives the power of the engine. Since the 2-stroke only has to stroke 2 times, this creates greater acceleration and speed for your boat. This type of motor is also much lighter than a 4-stroke. Being lighter means a more power-to-weight ratio. There are some negatives to 2-stroke outboards though.

A 2-stroke motor is not environmentally friendly when it comes to exhaust. These emissions can be harmful to you, the water, and the air around you. The fuel consumption on these types of motors is much higher than a 4-stoke outboard motor. One other factor to consider is noise. 2-strokes are a lot louder than 4-strokes. If that doesn’t concern you then maybe a 2-stroke is the right one for you.

4-stroke motors have a lot of positives. The biggest one in my opinion is being more fuel-efficient. Burning less fuel with today’s gas prices is a huge plus. They are far less harmful to the environment. These types of motors also have a better lubrication system making sure all the working parts are oiled making your engine last longer. One of the main reasons to consider a 4-stroke motor is torque. If you have a heavy boat and need some serious torque to get things moving then a 4-stroke is probably a better choice for you.

The negatives of the 4-stroke engine are not that bad. It is heavier than a 2-stroke outboard. You will not be moving it that much though. Plus, with the outboard brackets listed earlier in this article, you won’t even notice the heavier weight. It does require some basic maintenance since you have an oil filter to replace now. Just like your car, it’s very simple to check your oil and replace the filter when needed.

In my opinion, I would go with the 4-stroke motor. It will last longer due to its lubrication system (with proper maintenance) and is better for our environment. We want to keep our waters healthy for all wildlife and people that will be using them for years to come.

Are Inboard Motors Better Than Outboards?

There are many factors to consider when deciding which engine to use, inboard or outboard. They both have advantages and disadvantages. As a whole, inboards are better when your boat is 30 feet or greater. If the boat is less than 30 feet, an outboard motor can be used.

Inboard motors are motors that are concealed down in the boat’s hull somewhere. For sailboats, the engine is normally under the cockpit and accessed from under the steps that lead down into the cabin. On most sailboats, especially older models, the inboards are diesel engines.

Sailboats use diesel because a diesel engine will last a lot longer than a regular engine. They have more power from less fuel as well. Diesel fuel has 20% more energy than regular gas. Diesel has a higher density which means it burns slower. You do get more speed and horsepower out of regular gasoline. Due to gasoline having a much lower density, it will burn faster creating more energy and HP.

The Hunter I used to sail on in the Destin, FL area would only have to be filled about once a year. The engine was only turned on when the wind was dead or we were trying to get in and out of the docks, but that is still a good amount of motoring. Imagine only having to fill your car once a year.

How much power should be your next question? Take a look at the next section to see how much horsepower you need.

How Much Horsepower Does A Sailboat Need?

As a general rule, you should calculate 1 horsepower(HP) per 550 pounds of weight. For example, a Catalina 22 weighs 2150 pounds. Take 2150 divided by 550 and you get 3.9. Always round up to avoid not having enough power. 4 HP is the right size engine for a Catalina 22.

I used to own a Catalina 22 and it had a 4-hp motor on it. The engine size was perfect for the size of the boat. Now, I couldn’t go 40 mph but the speed was good enough for me. When you are motor sailing speed is usually not a concern. Cruising slowly is the best in my opinion.

Let’s look at a 30ft boat. This is a very common size in the sailing world. A 30-foot Hunter Cherubini’s displacement is 9700 pounds. Displacement is another term for the weight of a sailboat. 9700 divided by 550 equals 17.63. I would round that up to 18 HP.

This is not an exact formula. It is a very good estimate compared to the other articles I have read about what size engine is needed for a boat. Usually, with a 30-foot boat, you will have an inboard engine instead of an outboard.

What is the most dependable small outboard motor?

outboard motor bracket for sailboat

When it comes to picking an outboard there are a lot of options. The average life span of an outboard is 1500 hours before maintenance or possible replacement. Take a look at the list below for some dependable options.

1. 2022 Tohatsu 6 HP MFS6DWDS

This is a great portable option. This is the largest single-cylinder option from Tohatsu. The shaft length is short at 15 inches. Some other features are, saltwater rated, 6 trim positions, low oil pressure warning indicator, and more. $1560.00

2. 2022 Mercury 3.5 HP Outboard Motor

The Mercury brand is a great one. We all know it and it’s very common to see all types of boats with a Mercury motor. This one has a 20-inch shaft, visual oil level indicator, 4 trim positions, and 360 degrees of steering. $1070.00

3. Suzuki 4 HP DF4AS3 Outboard Motor

Suzuki’s 4 HP motor is a good option for smaller boats. It has a short 15-inch shaft with a large easy-to-shift lever. It weighs 52 lbs which is a lot for this size of the motor. It has a fold-down tiller handle and 90 degrees left and right steering. $1245.00

4. Honda 5 HP BF5DHLHNA Outboard

Honda is a great engine creator. We all know the brand and love it. This motor comes with a 20-inch shaft. A 15-inch shaft is available. Digital CD ignition for easy starting and low oil warning. There is even an option for a 6-amp charging system. $1742.00

5. Mercury 9.9 HP ELHPT EFI ProKicker Motor

This motor has an electric start! Making this a great option for convenience. It is on the larger size of power with 9.9 HP. It also has a power tilt button for easy positioning. It comes with a 20-inch long shaft as well. If you have plenty of money I recommend this one. $3720.00

6. Mercury 5 HP Propane Outboard Motor

That’s right, this outboard runs on propane! I have never experienced one of these but the clean burn is intriguing. Some of the other features are rated for saltwater and six trim positions. Check out the video below for more information. $1645.00

7. Suzuki 2.5 HP DF2.5S4 Motor

This little guy is a good option for the price if you don’t need a lot of power. It is only 29 lbs and has a 5-year warranty. The shaft length is 15 inches for those shallow waters. $819.00

8. HONDA 2.3 HP BF2.3DHLCH Outboard

For a smaller option with a good brand try this one. It has a 20-inch long shaft and 2.3 HP. The 5-year warranty means this will be your outboard for years to come. $978.00

9. Torqeedo Travel 1103 CL Electric Outboard

If you prefer no gas then this is the one you want. It weighs 39 lbs, has 3 HP, and is 29 1/4 in length. The best use is for a dinghy but if you had a small sailboat it could be great for motoring in and out of port. The price is a little high. $2999.00

When it comes to deciding which outboard motor to get just think about how fast you want to go and how big your boat is.

Are Outboard Motors Easy To Work On? Personal Experience

Outboard motors are very simple to understand making them easy to work on. If you ever have to deal with a broken down outboard motor, depending on the size, you should have no trouble figuring out the issue.

I had a Mercure 8hp motor on my sailboat and had to work on it a few times. One time it stopped shifting while caught in some high winds. Fortunately, popping off the top I saw that the shifter connection had come detached. I was able to attach it quickly and get the boat moving away from the rocks.

After returning to shore I made sure that would not happen again.

Outboard motors are basic engines that need basic maintenance to keep them running. If you have worked on any small engines before, this should be no problem for you to figure out. Especially since everything is on the internet these days.

Final Thoughts

I hope this article helped you learn a bit more about outboard motors and how they work with a sailboat. I know this might seem like a daunting task, installing an outboard motor and bracket, but it’s really not that hard if you just take your time and plan it out. My outboard was a huge help in times without wind and I strongly recommend adding one to your vessel. Cheers!

Auxiliary Motor Mounts and Outboard Motor Brackets

Auxiliary motors often serve as a second source of power for boats and can be very useful if your main source of power goes out. They can also be used as an engine source to propel your boat in a slower manner, often referred to as trolling. These motors are frequently mounted to the bow or stern of your boat with auxiliary motor mounts. Wholesale Marine offers a wide variety of options of outboard motor brackets from leading manufacturers like Garelick , Davis , Sea Dog , and Moeller Marine .

Motor Mounts and Brackets For All Types of Engines

Determining the right type of auxiliary motor mounts will depend on the type of engine you need to mount. For a bow-mounted auxiliary motor, spring-loaded outboard motor brackets work best and provide protection from grounding.  Garelick Platform Mount Auxiliary Motor Bracket is made of Stainless-Steel Hardware and is made for motors up to 15 HP.

For transom mount motors, it is a good idea to have adjustable brackets that will allow for different heights and angles to ensure that the motor is submerged to the right depths. The Garelick Auxiliary Outboard Motor Bracket to 7.5 HP allows the motor to swing up or down and has a 4 position height adjustment.

Wholesale Marine also offers tools that make auxiliary motor maintenance and repair easier. The Garelick Outboard Motor Stand makes storing your outboard motor during winter or while making repairs easier. The Garelick Outboard Motor Carrier makes transporting your motor to and from your boat almost effortless.

No matter what type of auxiliary motor you have, we have the motor mount you need to make sure your motor is secure and ready for use whenever you need it. Have questions about which auxiliary motor mounts are right for your boat, contact our team of boating experts at 877-388-2628 Monday through Friday 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM EST. Inquire about our Captain’s Club Rewards Program for additional discounts on future purchases.

Our marine welders wanted to create marine products for the hardworking, budget savvy person. In South Florida, we witnessed people asking us about our home-made aluminum outboard bracket every time we went boating. Once we gathered information from local boat mechanics whom work on these inboard boats, we realized many people have their boats sitting for years. We decided to roll up our sleeves and go to work. Our family line of welders introduced a design to fill-a-need. They created affordable, outboard motor bracket(s) with a variety of setback options & a standard universal outboard bracket with a 13 degree angle.

From 115hp to 250hp / 2 Stroke or upto 300hp / 4 Stroke, we have the outboard motor bracket to fit your transom. The standard Universal Outboard Brackets measures 20.5" Setback, 19"H x 18"W and made with a 13 degree angle. It carries upto 250hp/ 2 Stroke motors, (capacity 615 lbs.), and upto 175hp / 4 Strokes.

Outboard Motor Bracket

Flamingo1

Mine needs updated/replaced and the OP installation of the existing mount results in the mounting board dragging in the water when deployed. While it hasn't been an issue, it seems to me that could exert a lot of force as you are moving through the water - in addition to holding the motor weight, there is added weight from the pressure of the water. It does not seem as if it was installed in the proper location. I've looked at West Marine and Amazon and there appear to be a myriad of options. I do not want to drill new holes to mount a new bracket if that can be avoided - and I probably should have done this before I just painted just in case it cannot be avoided - but I'm in the market for a new motor mount bracket. Because of the dragging issue, I believe I need multiple adjustments. I want stainless steel and not aluminum (I think). Has anyone replaced a motor mount bracket recently and do you have a good recommendation for a make/model/retail outlet for a motor mount.  

I just went through a motor mount issue, but a couple of photo's would answer a bunch of questions. Don  

Barnacle_Bob

Flamingo: go see Tom at the Sailboat Shop. He usually has the motor mounts in stock -and I've watched his guys replace them on C-22s in no time flat. He sometimes has used mounts as well. I will be going up to the boatyard tomorrow morning - you can look at the mount on my 1981 if you like. - Bob  

Flamingo - if you are interested in meeting at Lake Pleasant tomorrow, call my cell: 602-363-5634. Tom stocks Garhauser stainless steel motor mounts. A few months ago I watched his guys replace a tired old mount on a C-22. They removed the old one, plugged the old holes with epoxy (or whatever it was), drilled new holes so the new mount was properly positioned, and installed it covering up the area where the old holes were. Looked great, and that C-22 owner was really happy. I am planning to go up to the lake tomorrow morning, but can be flexible with timing. - Bob  

Bob, My apologies. I wasn't on line this weekend and just saw your posts. I wish I had seen them sooner, I would have joined you at Lake Pleasant on Saturday.  

Catalina Direct.com carries one by Garhaur. I have a O Day 22 and replaced mine last year with a Garlick with the 15"travel. The problem with that one is the springs are rated for a motor up to 175lbs. I think and they are way to stiff to put the motor in the lowest position. I wish I would have gotten the one from Catalina Direct it was only rated to 115lbs.  

Hi Tim: I saw Tom at the lake today - he joined the AYC cook-out after the race. He said that you and he had a good talk about your motor mount, so hopefully you're on the way to getting that fixed. The C-22 fleet ran the committee boat and cook-out today, so no sailing for us. But, the club had some nice wind and a good couple of races on the lake, which was great. Take care. - Bob  

I did talk to Tom and I'm having them do a couple of jobs on the boat this week including replacing the mast-step plate. My 1972 Cat 22 still has the original aluminum mast-step plate which, I understand, was notorious for failing. I'm having a nice stainless replacement installed. Yes, I could do it myself, but I would have to find assistance taking the mast down and putting it back up - so I thought I may as well just have it all done. At the same time, I am having them replace my halyards. I have partial wire halyards which I am replacing with all line but, more importantly, my previous owner had installed a single halyard running to both main and jib. I won't try to explain again, but picture one continuous line with wire halyards at each end - one running to connect to jib, one running to connect to the main. So, my main halyard and jib halyard were not only the same color, but the same line. Not only confusing, it was also a bit messy. Back to the outboard motor bracket - I talked to Tom at the Sailboat Shop before visiting my boat on Saturday and discussed the motor mount situation. He asked which mounting holes the PO used to install the existing bracket and suggested just moving the mount up one (or two) sets of holes. The wooden plate to which my motor attaches only drags an inch or two in the water, so that seemed like a good and easy fix, but he then warned that many people use the corner bracket holes because they think it more stable. And that is exactly what had happened. No adjustment left in the bracket - see pics - I rotated and saved these pictures, but uploading them seems to automatically rotate them back. Nevertheless, this mount isn't very good. Raising and lowering is a process due, in part, to the fact that there isn't really a handle on the release bar. I'm strongly considering this: http://www.amazon.com/Garelick-EEz-...C_UL160_SR95,160_&refRID=0M12QYGHKGZYD6S8QZ2Y That may be the project for Saturday.

Hi Tim: I hadn't heard that mast steps were failure modes on some of the older boats - interesting. Good to have the Sailboat Shop replace it. Mine was damaged last summer, and I had a rigger in San Diego replace my mast step. In future, if you need a hand dropping / raising your mast at the lake, give me a shout. I'm up there almost every weekend ... Until it gets hot. I've also had Tom and his crew help me with my mast raising / lowering - he's never charged me for a few minutes of labor to help with that. Wow, your halyard seems like a real science project. I had Tom replace my wire+rope halyards several years ago. Keep the cable wire from the discarded halyard - it's handy for cleaning out the old style scuppers now and again. I was on the AYC committee boat last weekend - the club had some really nice sailing ... Maybe the first time this year. Nice winds, and some exciting races. There were a few C-22s on the lake enjoying the windy conditions too! I will be up at the lake sometime this weekend, at least for awhile. Shout if you need a hand. Take care. - Bob

  2. Outboard Motor Mount recommendation?

    Feb 5, 2020. #1. Hi, am replacing my older, flimsy aluminum motor mount and 5 hp pull start Honda outboard with a new mount and a larger / heavier 8 hp electric start outboard. I have looked hard for a suitable mount for this heavier motor and found a Catalina Direct 3 spring or a Panther Marine tech mount that look adequate.

  3. Putting an outboard on a sailboat: I'm clueless!

    Re: Putting an outboard on a sailboat: I'm clueless! I would look into a 4 stroke, long shaft, (25 in) 6 - 9.9hp, high thrust outboard. If you can access the bracket easily from the cockpit you may think about simply using the tiller controls as that is much simpler then setting up remote controls on that size boat. 22-09-2019, 12:25.
