Do you have the 71091 offshore
model with a 15 1/2 " lift
Since I have a 25 degree raked transom I will have to make a wedge shaped transition to mount one, I have been considering making a foundry pattern and casting one in Aluminum
Yup - I believe that's the model I have. I remember (I'm old) that the list price
was around $400+ and the lift
is either 14.5 or 15.5. I also had to cut a wedge, but I cut two wedges out of solid oak. One for each side of the bracket. Each wedge is 3.5" wide. I then epoxied the wedges and used butyl rubber under the wedges and bolts. For upper bolts, I used threaded rod as the lengths in bolts were hard to get in the two days I had available. Now as solid as a rock. A cast wedge would be even better, but make sure its thick enough not to bend or distort in any direction
