Has anyone tried putting a bow mount trolling motor on a Rage, or seen one that had one? I'm wondering if there is a way to do this, even if it means using a transom mount and fabricating a bracket up front from which to hang it.

Thanks!

On the rage I had, I clamped an aluminum plate on the front rail using "U" bolts. I then mounted a wireless control electric trolling motor on the aluminum plate. This was easy to do and required no modifications or holes to the hull. You do need to get quite a long shaft trolling motor (I don't remember the shaft length)

Sounds kind of like the setup I was imagining. Any chance you have a photo of it??

Thanks,

I even tried searching all the Rages I could find for sale on the internet, and still couldn't find a photo of one with a trolling motor. Don't other people fish out of their Rages? They do make nice little fishing boats! I would just like to see a picture of what others have done to mount a trolling motor before I start working on mine this spring....

Ryan,

I have seen a pic on this board somewhere.....I a getting a 190 Rage also and plan to put one on as well some day.

The pic I saw had the trolling motor mounted on the Transom

You might find it if you do a search
