After owning 3 Yamaha 8hp High Thrust motors, I decided to buy another to run on my 20-foot Trophy.
I also like 4 strokes as I have a 70 gallon gas tank and I'm not particularly intrested in taking up fishing room with a small extra tank. Also, on my mini jacker the prop is out of the water when the motor is tilted up so no problems with drag. I'll intrepert this to mean he LOST his motor off the garlick bracket and he is also not keen on them. I opted to get the 15 Honda as I wanted tilt and trim and remote controls that I could not get on the 9.9 at the time of purchase.

MasterCraft pulls new world records in womena€™s slalom and tricks and sets the womena€™s world record in jump three times. MasterCrafta€™s WearGuard pylon reduces rope wear and makes waterski runs smoother by eliminating ratcheting. MasterCrafta€™s new ProStar 205 becomes the first open bow boat to gain AWSA aproval to pull World Record Capable tournaments. MasterCraft introduces new versions of the MariStar 200 VRS and 225 VRS that set new standads for V-Drive Boats.
New Monocoquea„? fitted composite stringer system brings aerospace technology to ski boats. A new high-pressure fuel pump delivers fuel more consistently for more power, better combustion and lower emissions. Advanced fuel delivery systema€”industrya€™s only tapered bottom fuel cell with an in-tank pump for improved performance and increase in usable fuel.
MasterCraft Training Systems (MTS), which is a ballast tank under the observera€™s seat in the storage area and holds up to 185 pounds, simulates the weight balance of tournament conditions. Keel line Gravity Ballast (KGB) system creates a low center of gravity for better handling and maneuverability than side tanks systems. Teak swim-platform transom protector guards the boat from accidental scratches by skis and wakeboards. MasterCraft introduces a re-designed ProStar 190 EVOA® hull, which lowers and softens the slalom wake. The Triple KGB System utilized two rear automatic fill tanks located on either side of the engine and a Fat Sac in the ski locker that team up to provide a total of over 800 lbs. The Binding Blaster is a tank that connects with a hose and pump gun to spray liquid soap into bindings, allowing a smooth, easy entry. The ProStar 190 EVO and ProStar 197 become the first boats in history to be AWSA certified in all 5 competitive water ski events with the LQ9.
MasterCraft ProStar 197 pulls new world records in Mena€™s Slalom and Jump and again holds the World Record Trifecta (Mena€™s slalom, trick, and jump).
Maintenance Free Fiberglass Swim Platforms are available in various sizes and configurations. Mark the center line of the transom and then lay a straight edge horizontally across the transom, touching at the center line.

Location: GA outboard in well inside boat I have a 26' center console boat that I am replacing the floor, transom and all wet foam in. I want the improved handling that comes with the weight of the engine a little forward of the transom, and the point of thrust also slightly forward of the transom to avoid transom squat when accelerating, trying to get on a plane. I think that putting the outboard in a well would add flotation to the transom, getting a better trim angle while running on a plane, and hold it on a plane at a low speed.
Location: Australia I'm not 100% clear about your plan, it sounds as though you could get rid of the squat rising on to plane with trim tabs, though. Location: Australia I recall seeing a fisherman's net skiff about 20' with a V6 Johnson outboard right forward in a well, about where the forefoot turns.
I think the outboard well is a cool idea, but as you pointed out, performance will be unpredictable, and once it is done there is no going back. I am considering adding a full floatation bracket, that extends all the way to the bottom of the hull, basically extending the planing surface of the hull. Location: GA This a picture that I edited in photoshop, added a bracket, with the floatation on each side of the outboard, as serving as a swim platform. Location: GA Kinda like the euro style bracket on the contender, but with a full floatation swim platform---pod--sponson. Location: usa Seeing that you will be involved in a major project , why not make some cheap extensions , and see how they work .

Steve That is exactly the thing I had in mind, I can only assume it is mainly a smooth water conveyance, otherwise things could get interesting leaping about in waves.
I am going to try to build something similar to the contender integrated bracket, maybe even with trim tabs built into the bracket.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Must Sell,Cuddy cabin, Like new condition, NEW engine and NEW outdrive, Trailer is like new with new tires, winch strap, and chains. I don't have any experience with these so I'm looking for any opinions and recommendations. If you do go drop down type tie that puppy up good when you trailer anywhere-get a 4 stroke kicker as well-Thats my 2 cents . Solid bracket keeps prop in water even when tilted slowing upper speed.-not true my prop is out of water when up? I run a connector link up front to the main while trolling, other wise the connector remains stored.
Routine maintenance checks can be performed by lifting the top onlya€”or the entire box can be lifted for additional engine access. You have read and agree to the Global Shipping Program terms and conditions - opens in a new window or tab.

I think I can create a well, with a smaller hole at the bottom, to put the outboard through, and create a two piece plate to attach from the bottom to eliminate water flow disruption, somewhat, and also allow it to turn. That leaves just the issue of having the stern clear for easier boarding by divers, but surely installing platforms either side of the outboard could help out there ? Can't imagine how that would have worked out, in a lot of ways, steering, aeration of the prop, you name it.
Once you've dug out 500# of soggy foam and replaced it with decent stuff she will handle fine. I think I am going to add a full floatation bracket to the boat, and hang an outboard on it. Adding the sponson-pod things (or putting it in a well) that extend the planing surface to the side of the outboard will not allow the outboard to use the bow up trim, when it is needed. I can get my Yamaha almost parellel to the water, a good 12" clear of the water, worst case scenario.
Typical of a fixed bracket, I have no moving parts to deal with, it's clean and simple(kind of like me : ) and it was cheap to build. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. I thought of flattening the deadrise, , but without the reverse deadrise on that boat, or making a tunnel like the boat in pic with pods. Otherwise seems like a lot of bother for an uncertain result, if the well is closed on all sides you have to be careful about the back of it 'catching' the water flow.
And extending the bracket a little aft on each side of the outboard, basically creating those sponson pods things, to help with floatation.
It raises the driver six inches higher than normal to allow for a clear, unobstructed view fore and aft. Be sure to measure A and B 3" in from the edge of the transom so that the platform will be shorter than the beam to allow for safety in tight docking areas.
The only applications for such modifications I have seen were net fisherman who wanted to haul their nets over the stern without snagging on outboards, but you may have to do the occasional dive to clear anchor lines if they foul the prop, seeing it won't be tiltable. That way I will still be able to use the trim of the motor to somewhat control the trim attitude of the hull. Options include Gelcoat Color Matching, *Custom Mounting Hardware, Rub Rails, and Boarding Ladders. Don't forget that excising portion of the bottom will alter the way it performs underway, and it will steer differently as well.
We installed trim tabs, and that did help hold the bow down when on a plane, but it really need some positive floatation around the bracket and outboard.
A full floatation bracket would help, or a bracket that has floatation that extends alittle aft of the transom, kinda around the outboard, like the little flats skiff in my pic, in my earlier post. Our engines were something of a cobble due to the tow duty so I can't help you out there much.
