Howdy Cavie. My son uses a Minn-Kota Power Drive on a quick remove mount on his Montauk.

I use a Minn-Kota Auto Pilot on a quick remove mount on my Montauk.

In both cases we use the motors to maneuver and position the boats on lakes and slow rivers to cast to structure for bass, walleye, pike and muskies.

Hope that helps.

Hi, Cavie.
Both motors are 12V, 40lb on 48" shafts.
The Power Drive was about $300 and the Auto Pilot was more, about $530.

The quick remove mounts were just under $40.

It all came from Cabelas.

I have been playing we/ the idea of installing a trolling Motor on my Montauk for quite some time, but I dont want to drill any holes in her. I guess my only option is to get a stern mount. Any ideas?

Cavie,
I mounted a 24V/60# thrust 50" Pinpoint on the bow of my Montauk. Installed the batteries in the console with a quick disconnect twist lock plug & a 50A breaker. This motor has built in transducers and allows mounting a sonar at the bow with out additional wiring. I mounted an identical sonar at the console that has the transducer at the stern. The setup works like a system where you can see any transducer from either display. You can also disconnect the foot pedal and stow it away. Unit has automatic shore, creek, and depth track and has worked great. I love it.

Tim I used a buds 36lb stern mount and it was OK. You have plenty of room but no reverse with that tiny thing, especially in any current. I opted for a 5hp yamaha instead.
