Default Adding Kicker to 2015 621 FS

Looking at a boat right now that was ordered without a kicker. As in, no static plate.


If I were to purchase and want a kicker, how would the static plate be installed? Seems like you can only access the top 2 bolt holes through the transom access. How are dealers securing the bottom 2 holes which are blind? Are lags acceptable?

I have a 621 with a talon. I was surprised to find out the top two were thru bolts and the bottom two were lag bolts.

What surprised me more was when I removed the talon to put a tilt bracket on, the lag bolts went completely thru the transom. Don't know why the didn't stop short of using lag bolts that would have stopped about a 1/4 inch from going all the way thru. I bet that transom is over an inch thick.

But they went back in without a problem Plenty of silicone on all four bolts.

Wouldn't all the way thru with large washer or backing be better at stopping a potential rip out?
