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

    •   Please feel free to elaborate and educate me.   With or without personal attacks. 
    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.  
    •   You can feel free to answer this question too if you like. 
    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.

Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
