This is about a McKee Craft, so don't get angry. I have a 1979 14' Aruba I'm restoring and want to mount a trolling motor--a MotorGuide bow mount model--on the bow. There is sufficient space on the gunwales (?) and I'm wondering if I could mount it with stainless lag bolts. There's no way of thru-bolting the motor with the space I have. Would the lag bolts just tear out of the fiberglas? Any ideas? Should I buy one of those MotorGuide quick-removal bases? Any experience would be appreciated.
