Powerpole Install on MA 18.5

Recommended Posts

I have an 8' Powerpole blade ready to install on my MA 18.5. 

Guess I have two options for the install;  get a bracket from Powerpole for the Atlas jackplate, or through hull to the transom.

Are there any advantages or disadvantages to either of these methods I should take into consideration?

Greatly appreciate the input

Getting the bracket.






Misread OP post....I didn't see the bracket on the JP.


It does require removing the engine from the transom....I installed two on my MA17 and it's no big deal to drill 4 holes and connect....you just have to cut a small access hole in the liner and then re-seal it with some PVC board....

Properly done, you should not have any water intrusion....use copious amounts of sealant in the holes and around the edges....

should be easy peasy then......
