Kicker on big boats


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the 20hp would do it or not. I have been told I would be better off to go with a 30hp. My other concern is if I remove swim platform I have no energy way to get back in the boat. Im pretty sure that is a coast guard requirement.

I run a Yamaha T25 high thrust on Aquasport 290 express. I have it on a Kicker Jack, mounted to the transom. I have the factory controls to start and put it in gear, then I run a Controllking for my throttle control. My buddy has a 31 tiara he put the same engine and throttle control on. Both boats have no problems at all with that motor.

This is the unit I bought. He has a stationary mount on his tiara. I like the kicker jack because I have raise and lower the motor in the water for rough days, no cavitation. I can also change the oil on the water without any issues. I split my platform down the middle, so I have a platform on either side of the motor. Works great for doing maintenance and cleaning.
