4-Stroke Outboard Bracket (Stork)

Hello everybody, I recently bought a 2011 Yamaha 4 stroke 9.9 which is considerably heavier then my Nissan 9.8 two stroke. I am looking in the for a Bracket. The new ones seem a bit pricey so i figured try here first.

Let me know if you have one and how much you'd like for it.

Thanks Jason

Re: 4 stork outboard bracket

We built ours out of teak. So far, so good - it's held up well. We have a Mercury 9.9 "4 stork".

Re: 4 stork outboard bracket

Actually, storks are notoriously weak. If you switched to cranes, you would only need two of them. Of course, they cost twice as much...

Re: 4 stroke outboard bracket

First off, sorry for all the spelling mistakes. I was typing the message from my phone at work. I didn't realize how terrible it was.

Do you have any photos of your bracket and how you made it?

Re: 4-Stroke Outboard Bracket (Stork)

Hey Jason, I wasn't picking on your spelling - just saw some humor.

I owned a C26MkII for many years - loved that boat. Yours looks like it is in excellent condition.

Any reason you aren't using the well for the outboard? We put a small garden mower inner tube around the shaft and when inflated, it kept water from coming back up the well. We also built a plywood enclosure across the engine connecting the rear of the seats and down across the front of the engine. It provided more surface space back there (for beverages, lunch, etc) and made the engine very quiet.

Have fun with it!

Mark

I have one of these Garelick 71056 Auxiliary Outboard Motor Bracket still in the sealed box. What would you give me for it + shipping to FL?

Re: 4-Stroke Outboard Bracket (Stork)

Colemj, I know i too thought it was funny.

Thank you! Yea its a great boat and i love it! I had my old 2 stroke in the well for only 2 months, before it was covered in growth and starting of barnacles. Besides, the 4 stork (haha) won't fit in the well. Do you have any photos of your boat?

Thanks for your help everyone.

Yeah! with that hot weather down there, it would probably make the springs soft. I wouldn't chance it.
