MOUNT THE MO­TOR

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

Many small out­boards come with clamp brack­ets, but these can vi­brate loose over time, risk­ing loss of your kicker. So don’t rely solely on the clamps. Se­cure the mo­tor by us­ing the lower mount­ing holes on the out­board bracket to through-bolt the mo­tor. The Gare­lick mount­ing pad comes with mount­ing holes for this pur­pose. Use stain­less-steel bolts ap­pro­pri­ately sized to fit the out­board mount­ing holes. Se­cure the bolts with fender wash­ers and lock­nuts. Gare­lick rec­om­mends against trai­ler­ing with a mo­tor on the bracket.
