Depends upon how much many you have to spend, and what your goal is.
In my case, I wanted to reduce weight and (more importantly) volume occupied by the thru-transom MOB
pole mounted into a 5" pipe inside the hull
- I wanted to re-use the space the pipe occupied, so I pulled out the fittings, repaired the hole in the transom, and put a MOM8 on the transom rail.
You need to maintain the MOM8, much like a life raft, and have it inspected on a periodic basis - so the cost is significantly more than a straight MOB
I made a sunbrella cover for the MOM8 to keep the sun from cooking
the materialis inside the box. So far that's worked well.
