How to install bow trolling motor on a SD 187 OB?
I'm hunting for suggestions on how and where to install my trolling motor on my 2012 187OB. Based on the info I got here (and Iboats forum) I purchased a Minn-Kota Terrova 80lbs with Ipilot. I also got the quick release bracket (mka-21).
I'm hoping people have pictures of their installation that they would be willing to share.
My plan right now is to install it going straight back a little off center so I don't block the step in front and also minimize the impact on the front platform. Any problem with this setup?
How did you deal with the overhang? My other boats were always aluminum.
Does Hurricane have a suggested method of installation?
Should I put a plywood backing to reenforce the install or the fender washers are enough?
I know it's a lot of questions and sure hope I can pay it forward once I get more familiar with this type of boat.
BTW How can I set a post to answered?
