Durban, South Africa’s outfit; Jet Ski Developments offers the Neptune Sliding Bracket. This system makes it easy to attach an outboard motor to your personal watercraft. It will help you reach your offshore fishing destination faster as well as easily maneuver your ski off its trailer and onto a couple of big rollers. The use of beach rollers gives more clearance and makes it easier to move the ski when off trailer. Also, the rollers keep your boat off the ground so no sand enters the motor.
In a video dated October 21, 2014, a rider is shown mounting the ski at the stern. The additional trolmotor is off center, allowing easy access onto the ski. The motor can either be centered or off to the side. Either way; the ski isn’t affected. It still moves in a straight line. Climbing aboard from the stern is just as easy as dismounting at the stern.
The motor can be tilted in order to use a PWC at full throttle. Make sure the boat motor is secured with a line if you go full on with your ski! The advantages of using the Neptune Sliding Bracket include safety and piece of mind. No worries about being stranded on your personal watercraft. If your ski breaks down, you have an extra engine! Use of an outboard motor also equates to less hours on your jet ski engine. Moreover, an outboard motor enables trolling at a slow pace. It’s great for reeling in those trophy fish like the swordfish the angler in the video fights and catches.
When the rider comes ashore, he simply removes the motor and bracket. The bracket isn’t difficult to unbolt and leaving the brace attached makes it simple to reattach the slider and outboard motor.
