How to Mount troll motor

5 posts in this topic

Okay guys I have a big problem. Bought a bow mount trolling motor. Neither one of us thought about it until looking at the instructions, but this is a fiber glass boat with no way to get to the washers for the bolts that mount the base for the motor. So now what do I do - take the motor back? We can not mount one in the back either because it is an I/O and there is no place to mount one. HELP!

They do have mouning bolt isolaters that work like a toggle bolt allowing it to be mounted from the top side only. The are packaged be Motorguide.

I had the same problem with my Minnkota bow mount. Minnkota also has a product called Quick Nuts. I used this for my fiberglass boat. If you have gorilla arms I wouldn't do this, but I couldn't get it to stop spinning so I bought some marine goop and put aroung the nuts and let it set for awhile against the fiberglass. After 48 hrs it worked great. I hope this helps you!

Thanks guys - I am off to the store again! Wouldn't it be nice if you could actually purchase something and not have to go back to the store 3-4 times to get it installed? grin.gif

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
