Motor Mounts for Driftboats


We sell the 3.5 hp 20-inch long shaft outboard motor. We only sell the long shaft for driftboats. We do not recommend the 15-inch short shaft because it is necessary to use a motor mount on a driftboat. The motor mount raises the motor on the transom. The motor mount does three things:

  1. It allows the anchor bracket to remain in the center of the boat. No more offset anchor masts.
  2. It allows the motor to be put in the optimum tilt position with relationship to the water.
  3. It makes the motor easier to steer and swivel for reverse.



  • Motor mount: $180 (pictures above)
  • Stainless steel hardware and safety chain: $20
