I think this is the new mount. I have it adjusted to almost touching the transom. It is the sandwich mount so the mount itself doesn't adjust up or down. Anyway, I just got in from working on it. I finally got an adjustment where it goes to the side of the vent. I removed the bottom clip hold down for the leg and slid the leg all the way to the control box. I then slid the leg out a little further than it was designed to go (the notch) but got enough of it out that it now supports the talon. I did not know how the leg was mounted, before. Now that I know, I'll just look around for a dowel or something that diameter that I can cut a little longer if I find that I need more. If I had known how the leg mounted, I would have just found a dowel sooner.
My problem is the way that a Champion back end is shaped. The bracket takes it out past the transom to where the back corners are angled forward at about 45 degrees. It puts that control box right on top of everything so it has to be braced at a higher angle and the leg needs to be longer than on other boats. Got it all worked out now.
Thanks everyone for all the assistance.
