A Couple Of Thoughts And Questions About Jon Boats And Trolling Motors If Like To Ask About
Posted June 02 2012 - 04:08 PM
I fish alone alot and I feel there's just too much weight focused in that back area where I sit to control the boat.
Today at the swapmeet I picked up a Minn Kota Powerdrive 40 foot operated TM for $125.
Couple of questions concerning this unit.
1. Anyone think I overspent on this unit?
2.Can anyone give me any kind of ideas or suggestions on how to modify or fab something up,so I can mount this on the front of my boat?
3.If I can get this fabbed up and mounted,is there a learning curve on figuring out how to operate and control the boat with your foot?
When Fishing,I practice C.P.R. (Catch, Photograph and Release)

A bow mounted motor pulling the boat will give you more control than a transom mounted motor pushing the boat.
Extending the motor power wires to the battery at the transom will give you somewhat of an offset weight distribution. I used the hull ridges for that path also.

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
