Trolling Motor Install

3 posts in this topic

I have a 70's Crestliner tri-hull boat and I want to install a bow mount trolling motor. The bow is a closed in area and cannot get in there to put the nuts on the bolts. Is it safe to drill a 6 in. hole inside and cover it, to get the nuts tightened.

Motor guide makes a fastener for bow mounts that is a rubber T that has a nut in the bottom. You drill a hole drop the bolt in and tighten it up. It expands from the bottom to secure the unit.

How do they work? I see that Minnkota also makes them. I forgot to tell you I was installing a Powerdrive from Minnkota. They are also hard to find to buy!
