I am looking for info on which trolling motors will mount on the bow of a SD2000 OB.

    You should probably hit Minn Kota's and Motorguide's websites.  Each has a "What motor do I need" link to determine which models are right for your boat.

    Minn Kota:


    I've owned both and each performed reliably, but I prefer Minn Kota due to their higher level of technology.  I spend more time fishing than maneuvering using their iPilot GPS based technology. 

    Also, looking at pictures of your model boat, it looks like the anchor locker cover is very close to the point of the bow not leaving a lot of room for the mounting bracket.  You need to measure that distance to see how much room you have to work with to choose and install a mounting bracket that will work best.

    If you put the words "trolling motor" in the search field on the forum, you'll come up with a bunch of threads on the subject like this one:

    This should help you get started.  Post more questions if you have them.
