Kicker Motor Length

7 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about adding a kicker motor to my 17' Sylvan and I have a couple of questions.

1. What length motor do I need? The transom is 22" at the center of the V and about 16" where the motor would go.

2. From the picture below will the steering arm interfere with mounting the kicker on this side of the boat?

Thanks Bass N Spear. Just out of curosity, what does the 20" measurment mean? Is it the distance between the transom mount and the cavitation plate? Some other dimension?

It looks like you may have an issue with the steering arm hitting the kicker .... another potential issue is having enough room between the raised gunnel and the big motor to get the full turning radius out of the kicker. A small set-back mounting plate would cure both of those problems.

And, I concur on the 20" kicker.

A long shaft (20") is what you're after... and you will very likely require the setback as Perchjerker mentioned or you will have significantly reduced steering ability with the kicker, and that's only if you'll clear the steering cable, which I don't think you will.

FunFish, there are 4 outboard shaft standard sizes (here upnorth don't use last one much)

15" Short Shaft

20" Long shaft

25" Extra Long shaft

30" Extra Extra long shaft

Since your motor is a long shaft you will need kicker to be same size or it will not be in water completely,

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
