I had a bracket that mounted on the outdrive on my Evinrude Rogue. Worked OK but was a pain to carry extra tank with pre-mix and have to listen to the two stroke run. Also in order to adjust speed for changes in direction, wind speed etc I had to keep climbing on the back of the boat. Since I used the boat on Lake Michigan for trolling I just propped it to run at trolling speeds at idle. Was actually more economical than running a noisy 9.9. As far as getting back to shore in ten years on Lake Michigan never had an engine problem.

  ray, if you look closely at the mounting of your engine and outdrive, you will see that the transom is very thin and does not support the weight of the engine and will have to reinforce the area where you mount the kicker.sail boats use some specialized brackets to mount kickers. usually not over 9.9hp.if you do not go offshore, a trolling motor will get you to shore, if you are in a lake or a river. i have thought about mounting one for tooling around in the shallow water with my 67 Johnson reveler. hope this helps, see ya Babz
