Made in New Zealand, lifetime polished marine grade 316 stainless steel.
Tenob OU015- 25hp Stainless Steel Platform Fit Rise & Fall Bracket:
Superior construction means that it is possible to have a motor mounted on this bracket while towing your boat on the road. No parts to come loose or fall off due to use of pressed stainless steel pivots and shake-proof fasteners.
25hp maximum standard & 20hp maximum long (20-23") shaft models. 58kg maximum engine weight. Applies to both 2 and 4 stroke motors.
Platform to top of timber: 475mm in raised position, 135mm in lowered position.
Vertical movement (adjustment) 340mm (13.3/8").
Reach: 350mm. Overall width (left/right) 295mm.
Mounting footprint: 263mm fore-aft (front-back). 280mm wide (left-right) (note that the bracket can overhang the platform up to 100mm thus reducing the fore-aft space required)
Timber size: 260 x 190 x 35mm. Varnished Pacific hardwood. Hardwood is an ideal material because the outboard motor clamps sink slightly into the surface, thus reducing the risk of the motor slipping off. This cannot be achieved with plastic mounts.
For additional lift assistance refer to "Large Spring Set" code OU03.
1. Mount as close to the centreline as practicable, without interfering with the main motor, rudder etc.
2. The port (LH) side if often preferable for better weight distribution and ease of operation. The motor weight is offset by the helmsman's weight on the starboard side. The steering tiller is normally on the port side.
3. Use four 3/8" or 10mm stainless steel bolts with eight large diameter (and preferably thick) washers. It may be necessary to reinforce the platform or step with a backing plate or pads. They can be made from marine plywood or aluminium for example. Mount them on the underside of the platform or step.
Warning: During installation do not attempt to operate the bracket before it is solidly mounted or the two large springs are temporarily removed. Ignoring this warning could result in serious injury.
