My 2002 Sport 13 has a Minn-Kota Power Drive 40 with 48-shaft on a Cabela's retracting slide mount. I used stainless machine screws and tapped into the Whaler board. Rubber spacers included with the mounting bracket shim the piece up enough to clear the rub rail. I used seven screws to make sure it stayed in place. Stand alone deep cycle battery in a box next to the bow locker. The installation is solid and stable. It has been in use for just over a year with no problems. The mounting plate does over hang the rub rail and I hope to resolve this problem soon before it bites someones leg.

This is a nine year old thread. It was recently revived. A dead link that used to point to photographs has been removed. This thread is closed.
