Here is what I was told about the brackets from the previous owner who repowered it and The Speed Shop down in FL where they did the repower...….boat originally had merc pro xs engines that were much more powerful and lighter than the Yamaha 4 strokes. They first started out with the Yamahas directly bolted to the transom but the performance was terrible and they didn't like the boats handling. Adding those little brackets helped with both. I think it helps the props stay in the water much more when you cross a big swell also.
