    Get a piece of 1/2" to 3/4"ply and pre drill for the mounting holes. Attach blind nuts on the backside of the wood and glass the wood to the transom. Get some stainless screws and attach. No holes in the transom.

    I'm running the Fram. It's real short and I was able to tuck it under an engine rail/mount.

    I like mudpumper's idea though. If my rails weren't long enough, I believe I'da gone that route. You could make the piece large enough to neatly hang other items too. You could kinda radius the corners/edges so that it blends in and wouldn't just look like a big ol block of wood. Paint or gelcoat to match and it would look good.

    Here is my bracket that I made. I mounted the bracket to the stringer and bolted it thru the stringer. THe filter head bolts to the top of the bracket. Its a nice setup and I can open the drain to get the water out. I have the filter on one side and the fuel pump on the other side. The bracket is the 2 pieces to the right.

    When I rerig my boat, I am going to incorporate the bracket into the railkit. I had one on my transom in my Kachina and it was a biotch to get to. Bergeron mounted it for the previous owner. THey drilled thru the transom and used counter sunk bolts. It was a mercruiser fuel filter head.


    My filter head/mount is a eddie marine billet head. Pricey but well worth the $$!!!! They have 1/2 or 5/8 npt ports and 2 ins and 2 outs.

    Here is my setup. I luv the huge filter and the drainco.....wait, I cant say that. Some idiot will quote that Its has a drain built in the filter to drain the water. You get a fuel filter and a fuel/water seperator all in one. Plus there is NO restriction!!!!!! Flows ALOT of fuel!!!! YOu can copy that part number and get the same filter @ Napa or Carquest in Wix,Napa Gold, or Carquest Blue filter "same as the wix but cheaper price". That setup is $91.50 plus shipping and the filter is around $12. So it comes to roughly $115 total when all said and done If you have any questions, pm me
