    Default Stringer mount pedal

    Does anyone make a stringer mount (gas) pedal for the LEFT side of a stringer? I'll have to replace the pedal in the Commander, and have adapted a floor mount in the past, but it would be a lot cleaner with a stringer mount.

    Here's the issue. Originally the boat used a hand throttle and the PO glassed in a HotFoot to replace it. I don't think there's quite enough room for normal pedal to clear if it were mounted on the right side of the stringer. There's no floor below the pedal... just hull. So short of a custom piece, I could through bolt a floor mount (not my favorite option), or mount a piece of angle off the left of the stringer and use a floor mount on top of that. Beyond that, maybe glass a 3/8" thick plate drilled and tapped to match a floor mount pattern and bolt the pedal onto the plate.

    Default Alum angle plate

    I made an alum angle plate from 3/16th flat plate and bolted it to the inside of the stringer for my place diverter. No reason you couldn't do it with a floor mount foot pedal on the left side of the stringer.

    I'm leaning toward this approach. If I mount it on aluminum angle off the stringer it'll sit a good 2-3" off the floor. The pedal in the Circus boat is mounted this way and it's ok because of the V in the hull. This hull is flatter and I'd prefer the pedal as close to the floor as possible for comfort. I just need to make sure the plate is firmly attached. I'm thinking epoxy under the plate and glass over it.

    Any reason you just could not lay a layer of glass between the new piece and the floor instead of apoxy?

    Probably not, I just tend to lean toward overkill. I've seen throttles pull out the floor at the worst possible times and would REALLY like to avoid that.
