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.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
