Default Twin Talons on a 2400 Purebay with a boarding ladder

Has anyone tried to put twin 12' talons on a bayboat with a boarding ladder? I would like to use the jackplate brackets made for the Talon, but I am not sure it will clear the ladder and the motor.

Thanks for any info you can provide!

I'm getting my BlueWave 2000 Purebay with the 12' Talon mounted on a bracket. However I am only going to have 1, on the starboard side and my swim ladder is on the port side. I'm thinking it is possible with a bracket mount off the jackplate, considering also that the Talon deploys straight down vs actual rearward movement as in the power pole design. I just asked this question to my boat dealer, after reading your inquiry--I should have an answer shortly. As in the future I might add another Talon to my set-up as well.

I fished on a bass boat with 1 talon and it would spin in the wind. He has since installed a 2nd talon and its the cats meow. I stopped by boat storage last night and from my seastar jackplate to the ladder is 20.5"

I still cant find any dimensions on the jack plate brackets for the talon

I just called minn kota customer service and he told me roughly 21" from the jackplate to the end of the bracket when its perfectly 90 degrees off the jack plate. I should be able to angle it out a little to make it work.

Heres a view of a universal adapt bracket, looks like you can literally get it where you need. Allowing of course room for the engine to turn max in each direction---then set talon just off the engine either side.

yeah the problem is the closer they are together the less effective they are at keeping you from spinning. Mine will be here Thursday. I will post a picture.

You could always go with twin Power Poles. I know they will fit.

Default Twin poles

I have a 24 bxbr and had to get a custom ladder fabricated to allow for twin power poles. Stick ladder was just a tad too wide. Not sure about talon though

I will say- well worth it as it holds great now whereas one pole in Decent current or wind was inadequate for a 24 bay boat

I just don't want to mess with more hydraulics in the boat. I will have mine installed Saturday. I will post a picture if I can figure out how.

It fit with the adjustable brackets, but just barely.

Yes, twin Talons or Power Poles will fit on a 2400 Pure Bay with boarding ladder.
