Mount trolling motor on a Tri-Hull

2 posts in this topic

I was wondering what my options are of mounting a bowmount trolling motor on my tri-hull boat. Due to the front being more straight it really is hard to have it out of the way. It says that it should mount in the center of the boat, but that would block people from able to sit in the front because the motor would be sitting straight back. So my question is, is there anyway to get some sort of a swivel mount to rotate it 90 degrees when not in use?

With the motor in the stowed position, angle the shaft along the edge of the boat or the inside of the boat to get it in the best position. Position the lower unit part whereever you need to for the shaft to be out of the way when stowed. They can be mounted off-center from the front of the boat, most of them are off a little. If you're still not sure, go to a big boat dealer and look at a lot of used boats that are rigged, you'll get the idea. Good luck.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
