Jared Campbell asks: Mounting the xi5 quick release bracket and the instructions say to use these black nylon washers both above and below the deck. This leaves a gap which I would think creates additional stress because the washers are only under the small puck portion of the mount. I want to do this once and do it right.

Anyone have any guidance?

I didn’t use any washers on mine. I agree better to be flush with deck.

The only reason i usually use them is to fill a void in an uneven deck but if it’s flat no and use stainless fender washers on the inside

I use the MINNKOTA QD mounts. Works great

Does the mg pucks holes match up with the holes if the motor was bolted to the boat? I might want to add a puck but do not want to drill anymore holes.

Ok I think your asking… Do MG and MINNKOTA have the same hole mounts. The answer is yes if you are using the “QD” plate. You just have to make the holes just a tad larger.
