HOR­I­ZON­TAL MEA­SURE

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

Choose the most ap­pro­pri­ate side of the tran­som. Since the out­board tiller is usu­ally on the port side of the mo­tor, most kick­ers are mounted on the star­board-side of the tran­som to fa­cil­i­tate eas­ier tiller steer­ing and throt­tle con­trol while slow-trolling or putting home. De­ter­mine a po­si­tion on the tran­som far enough to the side so that the kicker will not in­ter­fere with the oper­a­tion or swing of the stern­drive or main out­board and vice versa. Make sure the po­si­tion al­lows for through-bolt­ing of the mo­tor bracket.
