Its a 17ft Fletcher, don't need to go that mad, but its doing 62+ (still slowest on here??! lol) and the stock mounts are shot.

Any idea who sells them? I have seen bobs metal ones which do seem to be ok, but just wondering if that's a bit too much.

Ok cool, thats one option, are they top or bottom or are they the same?

Still after nylon if anyone knows anywhere to get them from. I think my normal mid section may not take the abuse of the engine if its mounted with metal mounts.

Interesting, more worried about the failure of my mid section etc than the mounts. I can play pretty hard on the water sometimes and don't really know what the metal solid ones will be like. Presumably you should do top and bottom mounts?

We make many of the racers nylon mounts.
Not had a failure yet.
