Okay, I finally picked up a Yamaha T9 long shaft kicker and now considering mounting options. 1998 Bayliner 2052 Trophy I/O, full length custom swim platform so obviously I'll have to modify it by cutting off one fourth of the platform or cutting a hole in it and dropping it through. I also have 8" trim tabs to keep clear of. I know I need a 4-stroke mount that can handle the extra weight (115 lbs) and high torque. Any other thoughts or recommendations? Which manufacture do you prefer? Panther, Garelick, OMC, CMC or other? Is there a particular reason you prefer one over the other?
