REFERENCE - OUTRIGGER MOUNTS
Grand Slam 170
The affordable Grand Slam 170 is easy to install and use. A simple pull of the button
swings the outrigger into fishing positions and also features a lay down arm for bridges
and storage. The Grand Slam 170 can be mounted through an existing Grand Slam
plate - a hard top that is a minimum 1/4" thick and is 4-1/2" in width and 5-1/2" in
length. It only requires drilling the 4 bolt holes and using 5/16" bolt, nuts and washers.
Grand Slam 280 & 380
Grand Slam 280 & 380 outrigger mounts are designed to work easily while
standing at the console. The pull down rotator handle swings the outriggers
into position and operates from under the top. The Grand Slam 280 & 380
can be mounted through an existing plate or to a newly installed plate.
The existing plate must be at least 4-1/2" x 5-1/2" x 3/8".
Drill a 3" center hole and 3/8" through bolt holes.
NOTE: If new mounting plates are needed, Taco Marine offers a weld on
mounting plate, GSE-1939.
When installing a Grand Slam through canvas:
1.
Cut an “X” over the 3" hole
2.
Install and bolt down the Grand Slam then trim off the excess canvas
When installing a Grand Slam through a hard top frame:
1.
Taco Marnie backing plates should be used for extra support
2.
When mounting through a core or foam filled top, spacers should be used in the
bolt holes to prevent compression of the top when bolting.
NOTE: Mounting to a hard top that is hollow is not recommended, contact the
boat manufacturer if the structural integrity of the top is questionable.
3.
The maximum thickness allowable for the hard top is 2-7/8" for the GS-280 model.
The GS-380XL is available for thicker hard tops up to 4-1/2".
TIP:
For the GS-280, the center of the 3" hole should be at least 7-1/2"
from the tubing of the canvas top frame, or any other object that may
come in contact with the handle. For the GS-380, the center of the 3"
hole should be at least 10" from the tubing of the canvas top frame, or
any other object that may come in contact with the handle. Wedge plate
available in 7.5º for tops that have an arch. For convenience purposes,
a template is available online at TacoMarine.com to assist in the
installation process.
