That looks stout! My kicker is mounted in the same place. My bracket was just bolted on top of that section of the swim step. I have found cracks in the plastic, and am now planning a new set up. :arr

on my old '83 trophy, i tried the same thing with the original swim platform mount. it lasted one trip, and was cracking. i built an aluminum mount for that one too. the yamaha 4 stroke was just too much motor for it. the original swim platform mounts were only rated for a 7.5 hp motor. and back then that was a two stroke, which is considerably lighter. here are some pics of that mount.

Nice work Smilie, have an 84 2455 with a year now and had borrowed a 15hp long shaft kicker, never used it though. My swim platform looks very similar to yours and Im wondering if you might know if a short shaft outboard will work at this mounting height, my swimboard has a fixed mount already attached but not as firmly as you have done, I presume you had the same set as me before you sorted it. 9.9hp
Thanks
Mike

mike, it may work. i'm not familiar with your model boat. measure from your waterline to the top of the mount. then measure from where the motor rests to the prop. you'll want the cav plate plus some of the leg in the water. just have to make sure you have enough to keep it in the water if the boat start pitching in heavy seas.
