Thought I'd post some pictures of a nicely mounted Minn Kota trolling motor done by RandyK on his new 150 Montauk. I'm currently in the process of trying to decide how I want to go about doing this. Randy was kind enough to email me these pic's of his set up and gave me the okay to post them.

I like it!

Do you have a seat up front like on a Dauntless?

I thought about a removable trolling motor and seat, but am afraid it will not fit under the lower bow rail of a Sport.

Does it clear the rail with plenty of room while lowering it?

Also, if you added a seat, can you show us a picture of how that was done? I can not find a bulk head mount for the common seat poles.

Thanks for sharing your pics.

Joe you'd have to talk to Randy about the clearance issue with the bow rail. As far as the seat goes it's the same set up as the 170 Montauk with a smaller 36 qt ice chest. A bow seat can be mounted off the face of the anchor locker - WT has one on his 170 Montauk which is a very sweet set up:

The bow seat is also on my list of to do's.

Pete,

That is the exact seat I want to add, just can't seem to find them.

Thanks again.

lurkynot great shots...is that a quick release motor mount? Do you have any pictures of the deck with the motor off the mounting bracket?

Pete

I used a mount from a guy in North dakota that actually slid forward when in use to make the swing over the rub rail when motor was used. In the stowed position, traveling or tarped I can slide the whole setup rearward if needed. When I am on the water I leave the mount in the full forward position and deploy the trolling motor when the situation calls for it.

I do not have a picture handy of the setup without the motor attached. Will look again.
