Just acquired a 1993 208 Adventure with a 2006 Yamaha 225 (exhaust corrosion kit already done) and want to add kicker to starboard side. I have seen a small offshore bracket posted on the forums that may work. Anyone done this before with similar engine?

How low does the stern sit with the 225? I am concerned about two things: Scuppers under water and possible a list to starboard with the kicker added. Originally the oil tank was on the port side and batteries on the starboard side. I assume the oil tank was removed but where are the batteries? If still in the aft starboard locker, you may need to relocate them (and the battery switches to the port locker for balance.

I will get back to you on that. I just acquired the boat and will be taking it out on Sunday. My recollection during sea trial is that scuppers were above water, how much above I do not recall.

Draft looks fine. Ran into other issues on the water which confirm the need for a kicker.
