I just took ownership of a Willard 7M that came with a kicker mount (and swim platform) installed from the previous owner. Its just a rather thick aluminum welded setup. Nothing fancy.
There is no "seatow" type service where I live and the ocean conditions are small craft advisory by the afternoon (most days). I intend to take the boat to some remote locations. So I have the mount... but not the engine (yet). Do you think the 9.9hp is enough to push the boat through rough seas/current/wind
BTW - the gas fuel tank for my setup is mounted below deck alongside the drive shaft.
Not sure why I can't post an image. Here is the link:
