    Default What size kicker motor and what length shaft and what bracket ?

    Hi guys New here , glad to be here as I could really use some knowledgeable advice ! I have a 95 kencraft 25 ft center console with a 1999 OX66 250 , the ox has a lot of corrosion but still runs half way decent , I’m getting a lot of smoke and weird idling but ok I guesss for now as I can not afford to buy a new main motor for this season so in an attempt to continue going offshore I’m thinking of getting a kicker motor to add for safety in case my main craps out on me at the worst possible time , could anyone recommend what size motor and length shaft I should be looking for and maybe what kind of bracket to use ? I will attach pics of my transom to kind of give you an idea of what kind of space and area I’m working with ! Thank you guys so much !

    Have you looked into the idle issues? I know the OX66 motors are known for O2 sensors going bad, also check fuel filters and lift pumps. That can be done for much less than a kicker.

    As was said in another forum, a kicker is not your answer. I would strongly recommend fixing the engine that you have. With the current the way it can be here and the normally rough sea state, the kicker will probably not be able to push the boat, much less get you back to port.
