Taco Outrigger Mounts

1127 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Makomagic
Has anyone used Taco's Grand Slam Fixed Top Mounts that bolt to plates on the hardtop? I am interested in adding outriggers to my boat this spring, and have been looking at these mounts because you can operate them from under the hard top. I was wondering how people like them. Also, does anyone know of a mobile welder in the Patchogue area who could come to your boat to weld plates? Thanks for any help.

Taco Outriggers

Mako I installed the taco grand slams last winter on my boat and they work great!

I used the 4"X 6" mounting plates with the holes(no need for welding)BUT is was not enough support.

What you need to do is have a custom mounting plate made 6"x the width of you hardtop supports and then have it welded to that and you'll be fine.

Like Paulie said the screw in type is much stronger!
