Has anyone ever used the Minn Kota "Engine Mount" Trolling Motor. I'm trying to add a trolling motor to a 17' Outrage w rails and this seems to be most sensible way. Would prefer a bow mount w hand control but that doesn't appear possible.

I have one on my 98 montauk.
I have been using since 1999.
I am prety happy with it.

I was facing the same delima as you were.
I mostly fish for Stripers( live bait trolling).

I have put my hand control on the console next to my depth finder, easy to adjust speed. Pushes the boat fine, the outrage is heavier you may want to go to 54lb model( I have the 44).

Watch out for fishing line and check your prop often.

I think you will be pleased.
