Fitting Instructions - Quick Release Conversion Jig
We’re often asked for instructions on how to fit the conversion kits, so we have put together the following photos and explanation.
- Bolt plate to boat through existing holes in stern seat.
- Drill the two holes closest to the bolts with a 6mm drill. Do not drill the hole closest to the stern (this is the backarm hole not needed in stern seat).
Use a block of timber on the underside of the flange to protect the boat as the drill breaks through.
- Repeat on opposite side in stern seat (In case of scull, move template to opposite side of boat and drill holes as instructed above).
- Move jig down to the next seat and bolt all three holes and repeat for all remaining seats.*
*Note: If the backarm hole does not line up with the supplied jig (most likely on pre- 2012 boats), this hole will need to be filled with plexus or similar glue. This hole can then be re-drilled with the jig once the glue is dry.
