Solid Kicker Bracket

Recommended Posts

All- Looking to see who has an outboard boat with the outboard on a Armstrong or similar bracket and how you set up your kicker. I’m thinking I will go with a solid kicker bracket (the adjustable scare me a bit). However I’m not sure unless I get a power trim tilt kicker how I will lower it. I was thinking of tying the steering together upfront with a panther style steering rod or tying right into the steering tube. Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I use an Adventure Marine fixed kicker bracket on my Proline with a Stainless Marine bracket.  I just tilt kicker when not in use.  For steering I have brackets on hydraulic steering and kicker for quick connect rod.  Pretty common on west coast to run kickers this style.  I've had people comment that the setup looked like a factory option.

Awesome thank you. Are you running power trim or are you able to reach to drop it down by hand?

Dropping and Lifting by hand- when I update kicker I would look into power tilt.  I have a backer plate under the mount and a safety chain for kicker.   Also use a ratchet strap to boat tie down to keep kicker  tight when running.  Found a couple pictures from when I setup boat originally.

There is an outboard bracket with an electric steering control on it. It is controlled by a remote control that you have on your belt and it allows you to attend your lines in the stern. Great when you fish alone.

I bought some aluminum plate cut to specfic size, welded it together and then powder coated. Total cost about $170.00. Hung a new Mercury pro 9.9 Kicker with electric start, tilt, panther steer and pro troll 3. Works awesome
