Attach an outboard motor to the NRS Raft Motor Mount and your raft is ready for fishing or moving you through those long, flat stretches.

  • We use our heavy-duty 1-5/8" OD 6061-T6 aluminum pipe to make the framework for the Motor Mount.
  • The 18" wide transom plate is a piece of 2" x 8" wood/plastic composite decking material that will not rot or deteriorate when exposed to water and sun.
  • We back the transom plate with two pieces of aluminum channel to increase the grip on the L-shaped pipe sections. Four 4 1/4" motor mount U-bolts hold the transom plate firmly in place.
  • If you already have an NRS Stern Seat Mount, you can install your Motor Mount on the Seat Bar.
  • If you do not have a Stern Seat Mount you will need a pair of NRS Stern Side Rails (item #90022.02, sold separately) to link the Motor Mount to the rear Crossbar of your frame. We stock three sizes: 32", 36" and 39". Measure the distance from the center of the rear crossbar to the center of the raft's rear tube. If you need a length other than those stock lengths, we will custom bend the size you need.
  • In our experience, a 10-hp motor is generally as large a motor as most boaters use. Even a 3-hp motor will move a raft along at a pretty good clip. Operating a raft at high speeds can be unsafe, and with a self-bailing raft will definitely result in water jetting up through the drain holes!
  • Always attach a safety rope or strap from your motor to the frame.
