My father has recently agreed to purchase a 19' dual console Trophy 1900. It's in the shop now while a few issues are being repaired before we take possession of the boat. In the meantime, haveing fished with HetfieldInn, and witnessed the pure trollling goodness that is the Mercury 9.9 4-stroke Prokicker, naturally we wanted to look into getting one of our own. It does not seem straightforward to mount a kicker on this Trophy. I called Norton Marine and they said I would need to get ahold of a Trophy dealer, and the only one that comes up is Clemon's Boats in Sandusky. Well, CLemon's told us that Trophy boats aren't designed for kickers and nobody uses kickers with Trophy boats. This is a ridiculous statement. Seems like Clemons really isn't interested in helping us mount a kicker. SO I turn to the OGF for advice. If you look at the floorplan of the boat, you can see that the well for the Main motor will not accommodate a kicker. The stern of the boat has "step-ups", the one on the starboard side has a swim ladder. The one on the port is clear. I think we'd need to fashion a bracket to hang the motor off of. Since I can't seem to find out anything from Ohio's vaunted "Trophy Dealer", These are my questions: 1. A prokicker is ~ 100lbs, Will that "step-up" support that weight? 2. Will that part of the stern support the push of the kicker? 3. Does anyone know of any other pertinent information regarding kickers on Trophy boats that might help us?
