Can someone give me a suggestion for mounting a transom mount trolling motor on my Amesbury 16? [/img] [/img] I am leaning toward a minkota endura 55, but I'm not sure what length to get. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I want to build an aft casting platform, console lighting, and a proper power on/off switch. The center bench comes out but then I have nothing to hang on to so I am playing with the idea of having a grab bar made out of aluminum locally. [/img] Thanks for your help. By the way, I live in Connecticut and sight fish striped bass on the flats in Long Island Sound. I will be towing this skiff down to the Upper Keys then the Tampa Bay area the first week in May to fly fish.
