I have a bunch of new summer photos of my 190 outrage with the trolling motor and custom bracket i built. I already posted them on photobucket, but not sure how to get them linked to this page. Anyone let me know.. Also, i will post the trolling motor, bracket and custom battery box on the electrical or repair/mods section soon.

Scott...on photobucket highlight and copy (keys ctrl + c) the "Url Code" below the picture and paste(keys Ctrl + v) it in your reply here. then type this [url] in front of it and this [/url] behind it, no spaces.
repeat for each picture that you want to add.
Submit your reply. done right the link on CW will be as I would say...clickable.
Note that the and don`t show up on the post.I initally tried to post links by looking at other`s and couldn`t make it work as I wasn`t adding the and .

hmm, I guess I made the word "and" clickable by having the url stuff before and after it in that last sentence.
Anyway...the above procedure works for me.

Hope you get the picture posting figured out, as I am very interested in seeing how you installed the trolling motor. I assume you are talking about an electric bow-mount, rather than a low horsepower "kicker."

Here are the photos. Hopefully this works!

Nice job. What components did you use to do that installation?
Where were the pics taken?

I built the bracket myself after the 15 foot whaler bracket under the reference section. I will put up a nice article soon on repairs/mods.
Location of one picture is on the st. Johns river in Sanford Florida in march. The other two were at Ponce Inlet near New Symrna, Florida last weekend. A little overcast but warm air and water (87deg. of air, 83 deg. of sea.

Nice job Scott. Who made the T-TOP?

The 190 with the top looks awesome

The t-top was added by the dealer and built by LTM fabrication at a price in the upper $4000 range. It has the net for vests and such and is double bow like the factory whaler tops. When i first saw the top i wasn't sure about buying a t-top (sure it's nice for the shade and extra storage for gear and rods) i had a bimini in mind for the last five years i had been waiting for a nantucket. But after close examination of the fit, qualityand look of the top and welds (i'm a certified welder) the dealer told me i could have the outrage with t-top for a thousand dollars more than the exact model next to it without. I slept on it and decided in the morning that it was the one i wanted. The biggest factor in the decision was to cover the boat. I wanted a full cover. Currently it has a full tarp but soon i will have a fitted cover. All in all i'm VERY happy with my whaler!

I also built a custome electronics box that is hard to see in the photos, i will take some pictures of that as well

Please do. I think I am staying with the bimini because we mostly dive and ride around and some fishing of course. But, I am curious, how does the Nantucket handle with the T top in the wind. I notice ours responds to the bimini by aggravating porposing tendencies. Just curious if the T top tries to sail the boat.

Diving was the determining factor for the 190 outrage. I had looked at the montauk but i felt the outrage was better for diving than the montauk. The t-top is nice for diving and fishing, no frame poles to get in the way and the t-top is rigid and has lots of handles to hang on as you move about. The t-top isn't as big as the bimini. I do notice some pull at 70-75 miles per hour but not bad. While fishing using the trolling motor, i can feel the wind pushing the hull and top, again not a real problem.
