Back Up Plan?


Recommended Posts

Thanks Nautitroller, I will check out the link!

 

My batteries and gas tank (internal) are mounted through the center of the boat. If I fish by myself the boat would probably be pretty level with a kicker on it.

I'm not sure I would be too worried about the small list that ensues from a kicker being mounted.  There are a lot of ways you could move ballast around to account for the small offset if that's an issue.  Between gear, fish coolers, 100 pounds of kings in the cooler at the end of the day.  The only time you would probably notice it is in extremely flat seas without wind...ideally you want to mount the kicker as close to center line as you can anyways which minimizes the effective lever arm to reduce the torque about the central axis.  The farther out from center its mounted the more of a list you will have.
