rhski, i also have that same trolling motor, i bought it used from my brotherinlaw a couple years ago, they also looked all over for a quiek mount but were unable to find one. so i made one out of 2 pieces of aluminum plateing, i mounted one plate to the bow with spacers to get it off the deck then i mounted the other to the motor, the bottom plate has slots in the corners and the top plate has holes in the corners, it mounts together with 4 bolts and wing nuts, seems to work for me. ricbak
