    I have a 1982 16' Sylvan with 20" transom and 40 hp.Mercury and wanting to add kicker.Don't look like there is enough room to mount it on the transom but hope I am wrong,don't want to add bracket if not necessary,will probably stay with 5-6 hp. to hold down the weight.Also trying to figure out hot how to add a few rod holders without destroying the flotation foam in the side rails.Hope someone here with a boat like this can give some tips.
    thanks,
    Jake
