    Default Stringer vs floor mount place diverter shifter

    Looking for a little pro vs con on these styles of diverter shifters. I'm adding one to my boat and have space in between my legs to mount one to the stringer. Only thing it looks like is the stringer mounted ones bolt onto the right side of the stringer and be in the way of my leg since my gas pedal is already stringer mounted whereas I could put L brackets on the floor mounted one and bolt to the left side of stringer which ideally would give me more space and not be in my way. I'm on the fence because some people have said there's more issues with a stringer mount and I see there's more floor mounted ones out there for sale. Any advice is apprecaited.

    Also if anyone knows of anyone with either one for sale please let me know. I did put an add up in the "for sale" section for wanting to buy 1 as well.

    Just go with the hydraulic diverter and then you won't have to worry about the handle being in the way. I started with a maunal diverter and switched to the hydraulic and was much happier with the operation of the diverter and loved the space savings.

    You have that any way just owning a boat. I had more problems pulling the screws out of the floor mount, and cables going bad than I care to remember. I have run a hydraulic diverter for years now with little to no issues. I will never go back to a floor mount or stringer mount again. Not to mention the sweet spot was always between the notches, hydraulic is 100% on the money when you find it. And I dont have to take my hands off the steering wheel at 100 MPH.

    Just bought a nice used floor mount really cheap that I'll just L bracket to the stringer. I'll give it a whirl and see how it does.

    I like the KISS method (Keep it simple). Floor mount and I am never in doubt of the diverter position......In regards to finding that sweet spot, linkage adjustment can be your friend...
