    New custom swimstep kicker mount for my 2455-gctid382497

    I picked up a quarter sheet of 1/4" aluminum plate, have my pieces drawn out and should have them welded up this weekend, or early next week. just wanted to share the design.Jsanders

    That looks like a really nice design.

    fantastic drawing too.

    are there commercially available units at a reasonable price or is this something custom because you couldn't find anything?

      the only one that I really liked was this one

      However, I'm not keen on spending $325+ shipping on it.

      the more affordable units seem to all be made for outboards that weigh less than 100lbs. My 9.9 is closer to 120, so those are an out.

            I made mine without welding. Same principle.

            I have a merc 2 stroke (72#) outboard. Doubles as the dinghy and 2nd means of propulsion.

            WAAAYYYYY overbuilt.

              Mine looks a lot like the OP design although, instead of the lower metal plate, which I assume is going to be the backing inside the swim platform, I used fender washers and then, on the lower legs of each side bracket, I ran SS (actually it wasn't stainless steel, but I wish it was) rods forward to small mounting plates on the transom.

              I was concerned that the kicker, a 10 hp Honda, when under power, would be using the leading edge of the swim platform as a fulcrum and be trying to tear away from the swim platform unless I put the two lower, kicker mount to transom, rods for the kicker to push against the transom.

                THANKS for this post. I had just started to look for a kicker bracket myself, I know about sticker shock for them up here. Our old set up was just not acceptable. My only problem is I can not make out the dimension. Could you e-mail them to me?
