Default bungee things????

Not sure if ya know what I am talking about, but Where do I get the mounting things that go to the jackplate for an outboard to clip bungees to, like the Stock class raceboats use???

I assume you are talking about the ones that keep the motors from bouncing? You can use a mounting eye like they use on the transoms of most boats (like a bow eye also). Then you just get the cord from any hardware store and use what I call hog rings to hold them on.

Yeah,

thats what I mean, I was thinking that, and will probably do just that, so I can gat on the water this weekend, but I was thinking of spending the $$ and getting something a little nicer, like I have seen on the raceboats.

That is what we did on the Suerboat and it worked very well. You can get the bungie cord in many colors.....

Great idea Dave,

looks like a lifting eye that was used as a nut on a bolt coming thru from the backside of the plate, now that I can get locally, and not have to drill the jackplate. The ones I saw on Stickerboys old boat looked a lot more trick, but that will work just fine.

Thanks,

Rick

McMaster Carr. Look for heavy duty eye nuts.

Eye nuts will thread right onto the motor mount bolts coming through the transom

Thats what I was thinking, but not thru transom, thru Jackplate instead.

Yes, if there is a jackplate, then right to the jackplate!
