JC..... is your kicker a 20in or a 25?     It looks like it tilts up high enough to run on plane without spinning the prop.. 

Also... not at all meant... to be a nanny..... but a prop guard on that kicker might be a worthwhile investment to protect the prop and keep DR lines and fishing lines from getting wrapped.

Did you remove your tie down eye?  I’m wondering if my bracket will sit in the same place?

If you zoom in on JC's pic...it looks like the tie down / tow eye is just clear of the Bite Me Too install!

It looks like it’s attached to the side of his bracket to me.

My kicker is a 20". It's actually a little too short in choppy seas.

Re prop guard...thanks but with the location of my downriggers the line does not come near, even on tight turns.

Also I prefer to use my main for trolling..

Bay Wolf: A friend of mine and I built a fixed bracket nearly identical to the Arima brackets. Our measurements were just a shade different than arima brackets, but the sponson angle was the same. That's the key to these brackets. We built and sold a few of them for 450.00, but both of us are retired, and love to fish and it started to cut into our fishing time. So after we had used up our existing aluminum supplys we quit building them. We sold our brackets with no mounting holes, so you could match your existing holes and drill the brackets to your own needs, or fill the holes in your transom and mount it wherever you wanted it. I would never go back to an adjustable bracket. I have a bf 15 honda on mine, and it is solid, no flop, no wiggle.

I have the Goetz and rebuilt the bracket last year. Yesterday it wouldnt go down ruined the trip. I replaced the relays still no love so we came home, now Im going to build a fixed bracket. I dont get the prices they are charging for these things even powder coating materials and labor seems like robbery to me.
Im retired but have started toying with starting up a fab shop in my barn; between custom D/R mounts, kicker brackets, and skiptops a guy could stay fairly busy and make tons of money at dealer prices............
