I have a 2006 xpress aluminum center console. not a tunnel hull

wanting to put some talons on it.

my question is would the transom support the direct transom mount. I have no fear of drilling holes.

or do I need to put a jack plate on it, I have no need for a jack plate.

but in the end I want to do wants best for the integrity of the transom so would pony up the money for the jack plate if needed.

I have two 12' Talons on my G3 Sportsman 17 mounted directly to the transom, so save your money on a jack plate and brackets. The latter is a lot of added weight that you don't need. I also have tilt brackets on my anchors, just had to turn them around and mount them backwards for them to lay down properly. I can send you some close-ups of the mount if you like, but here's a pic of my boat.....




By the way, I had my Talons on a Skeeter TZX 190 w/ Yamaha HPDI 175. My G3 has a Yamaha 90 and it gets on plane twice as fast as the Skeeter did....
