what bracket did you use on the older PD?

when I upgraded to a terrova on my old boat I used the same bracket with the thumb screw in the side... you have to put a washer or two between the terrova and the bracket because the sides are lover on the terrova then the PD...

works great..

I just bought a new Terrova and got the aluminum mount (MK-016, I believe). So far, so good. Like mentioned, you need a washer between the Terrova and mounting plate to shim it.

I think the MKA-32 is the nicest mount, with the cam action and the cover for when it's not on the boat. It's also the most expensive.

The MKA-21 and MKA-16-02 work well too. The only complaint I have with the aluminum MKA-16-02 is that I've seen them damage boat covers while trailering.

If cost is a concern there are some aftermarket mounts that let you remove the trolling motor. I bought two and put one on each boat so I can move the trolling motor between two boats depending on where I need it.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP THE WASHER DEAL DID THE TRICK, 1 OTHER QQUESTION IS THE WIRELESS CO-PILOT THE WAY TO GO OR NOT?

I PERSONALLY THOUGHT A WORELWSS FOOT PETAL WOULD BE MORE CONVENIENT.
